I have dithered around more than usual at this last border. From wondering between a blue and the green of the checks, I actually auditioned the green of the checks, and it was obvious it was wrong. Then I auditioned each fabric from the flying geese, and there were a couple that were okay. Then a friend suggested abandoning the cornerstone and having an all golf-course fabric border. And that auditioned well. BUT
the cornerstone is back, and here is why. The golf-course fabric was directional and large enough that it needed to be matched. I didn’t mind fussing around with matching, but the repeat was very wide. To get two 11 1/2 inch strips the length of the quilt would have chopped the piece so much that the remaining chunks would not be usable in a pieced back. So back to the cornerstone to avoid matching.
Now to work on the pieced back.
Okay, so today is Saturday. I think I can still link up to Link a Finish Friday, and even if I can’t, you can brows the quilts there. And I just found UFO Sunday! (link on the side) This, planned three or so years ago and started in earnest a year ago then put away, sure qualifies!
