Pick and Choose....still talking?


Everything but the kitchen sink is in this scrappy top. Directions on how to make a fabric book from a panel, scraps sent by Erin, reused pieces from my top swing your partner, and left over bits from various other Bonnie Hunter mysteries. Somehow it just doesn't feel finished. Lazy Gal pointed it out to me and I have the left the top out to study it a bit more.........maybe it will tell me what it wants.......I'm listening :0).

have you considered another row like your current border, then a final row of blocks all the way around? (The reason for the extra row of traingles would just be to get the blocks to fit easily around the edge)... I often find an "inset" border really works well on a scrap quilt, end the "scrappy" blocks outside it just tie the whole thing together... The down side is it makes it a lot bigger unless you take some of the centre blocks out and move them to the border area....

Thanks for the close-up photos. If suggestions are what you want, try to audition your turquoise as a narrow (not more than 1 1/2 inch) strip. If you like it, try a pieced binding such as the sashing strips are. Keep looking. Design is the very best part. Until you come to the quilting, then that's the best. Or,...I guess we like it all, huh? pokey
