…I am the quilter looking for advice. Advice on how to complete this…
This is Lily Pads, an Atkinson Design pattern. I picked up the fabric as a kit about a year ago. I didn’t like the quilt it was cut for but the kit was cut in fat quarters so I just thought I’d use the fabric for something else which I am FINALLY doing. The quilt is suppose to be 85 x99 finished. I have plenty of fabric for outer border(I hate that it’s a directional fabirc but I think I’ll tinker with it so all of the fabric borders go in one direction..I want to use it up.) The fabric is shown in the lower corner of the picture.
What I need is some advice on is the inner border. I was thinking a solid pinkish color to match what’s in the quilt. My daughter says no mom…and then accused me of picking a color close to red just because red is my favorite color. She wasn’t a lot of help.
I thought about skipping the inner border but I think the quilt needs something to make it POP! I am not a big fan of borders and it’s okay if the quilt was smaller but I think it needs something. It’s looking a bit plain to me.
I already have the backing. It’s a big multicolored polka dot.
So advise away….let me know what this quilt needs…don’t forget binding suggestions too!
