After many, many weeks of being way too afraid to touch them I have FINALLY sewn the blocks for my sew connected 2 quilt together, pieced a 6 inch border, sewn that on...and stopped to breathe. *sigh* I think I am in love.
I wanted a sampler quilt, with loads of different types of blocks, made in different ways, each one totally up to the person making the block.
I don't think I could have ask for anything more perfect, do you? (I'll try and get an outside photo at the weekend, it's a bit windy today but if you click on the pic it gets BIG so you can see it better)
I have been toying with the idea of adding another border, but I wasn't sure. I think I'll leave it as it is. The wise women of flickr have said to leave it be. The husband also suggested leaving it with the one border, and binding it in a purple based fabric. Check him out, he's picking things up - maybe he'll turn into another quilt dad and try and steal my machine. There'll be trouble if that happens. He also suggested a very busy quilting pattern - like a paisley. You know, I think he might be right.
