I began making clothing as a teen. Last winter my obsession was Home Decor, including curtains for my mom. Pillows swarmed into the living room. Purses were made and I learned, I really do love to sew everything. This winter quilts are my passion and I'm happy to share some of my work with you.
Tuesday -- I'm done sewing the Easy Street Mystery Quilt Top together. Right now, this measures 64" square without the 2 borders (shown below). The title I'm playing with is "Singing for our Supper - Cats and Dogs"
Choices for 2 borders are:
Purples - The Solid was used and the 3 one over with small purple apples, but not the 2nd with the Hearts and other design. That one may be a bit "too" much with everything else going on.
Turquoise or one with a Dog Bone print... While I'd like to use the Dog Bones print, it's a bit "busy" and OFF a shade or two away from the other Aquas and Turquoise I used. The Batik looking Turquoise was used in some of the units in the quilt.
Close up of the colors
I like these two -- The batik looking Turquoise and the Solid Purple. But which will pop off the green outer border better? I think the Solid Purple won't bounce off the Dark green as well as the Turquoise so I'll use that for the larger outer border and put the lighter Turquoise in a small inside border. Maybe use the dog bone print for the binding?
Final Decision time! Cut, sandwich, get this quilted, bind and Up for Auction she goes.
