My Soul Searching quilt top
One suggestion was to stitch a scrappy border. What a mess I got into, pulling out the various colours I had used from my containers. Cut strips off, and stitched them together into a couple of long lengths.
Lots of strips sewn together
Taking the quilt top outside, I arranged the border strip down one edge, plus some cream fabric across another, stood back and took some photos.
With a piano key border, perhaps?
Mmmm – I’m not too sure. But I’m leaning towards a “no” vote – It’s just a bit too busy for me. I’m not really a “scrappy” person, and although there are nine colours in my quilt top, they are all nicely together in their colour families. (Perhaps I have a control problem?) But I would appreciate some feedback, and would like to hear any other point of view.
