Yahoo…I have BLOCKS!
I really love the blocks…a lot! I am so glad that blog readers sent me their leftover scraps. ALL of the green in this quilt was from scraps that were sent to me. I would not have had such an awesome collection of greens without the generosity of a blog reader. Lots of the other scraps were gifted too but I did have to supplement the neutrals and blues.
So it’s time to pick some borders and sashing. I love what I have in the photo for the outer border. I am using that for sure. I think the blue/green of the sashing I’ll keep too. The question for me is the blue…which blue is best?I don’t hate any of them…some I like better than others. With some there isn’t a lot of difference one way or the other. Oh it’s hard to choose. I think looking at in pictures vs in person is actually easier. So do you want to know what I liked best….This one!
Of course I only have one yard of it. It isn’t as busy and is a shade darker. I like that. I need more than a yard…closer to 1 1/2 yards. UGH. I wish I hadn’t seen this option as now this is what I want. I had hoped to not buy a lot of fabric this year…UGH. Here I go, buying fabric already.
What would you do? Use one of the others or hold out for the best option?
You can find me there next week. I’m not sure what I’ll be working on. I really think I want a fabric more like that last piece I showed. I’ll either fit in a quilt shop visit or I’ll pick another project.
