What I’m Working On….

I have a wedding quilt in the make.  Remember these notes from a week or so ago?

I had told you I was working on a quilt…I was.  I didn’t let it sit very long.  I had these cut out in no time….

I sewed a lot over the weekend and got all the blocks made.

I even got the center finished…but now I’m busy deciding on borders.  Sadly, I’m not showing the whole quilt.  I want to keep it under wraps a bit…but what’s a girl to do when it’s a gift quilt?  Do I add that last outer white-ish border?Ambers-Wedding-Quilt-4

I’m leaning towards yes.

So far, I’m really happy with this quilt.  It was not challenging which is always nice if I am chasing a deadline.  I’m plenty okay with time as of now…the wedding isn’t until July June 22nd.

I am already debating about the quilting and don’t have a clue about that…any suggestions?  The quilt suppose to have more of a modern feel and neutral like the vintage farmhouse look.  That puts me at a loss.  I’m wondering if straight lines might be best.

    I think the light outside border looks good. Also, straight lines sounds good. Did you mean the wedding is July 22nd because June 22 is past. The quilt looks very pretty.

    I think the addition of the white border is good. Definitely straight lines for a modern finish. Maybe a Greek key design to sort of enhance the design? I’m sure it will look fab whatever you decide.

    I agree with Gretchen. Straight lines would look good. Anxious to see the whole quilt. Looking good!

    Normally I like a dark frame around a quilt. But on this one a light border should make all your dark pieces float. Which ever border you choose will be good. Quilting? keep it simple and uniform in size

    The white is nice. I say yes to straight lines. I myself am not a fan of overly quilted quilts. I don’t like the feel of them. Simple straight lines that aren’t dense would be nice. Simple is always best, lets the fabrics shine. It will be a great gift ;c)
