Borders


I finally am getting the Scrapaholic quilt finished. Maybe I should say I am finally getting some borders on it. I have stitched the light blue 3 1/2" border on and preparing the next red border.

This red border is going to be finished at 5 1/2". As you can see it is made up of lots of strips of different reds. Some are bright, some are dull, some are dark and some are more orangie reds. I once was told that if you think the reds you selected don't go together just add more and they will look great together. That has been my theory to use with lots of colors. The more you add the more the colors go together.

I plan to add two more borders after these get stitched on then I will have to decide if I am going to machine quilt it myself or send it to a local machine quilter. Hopefully I can get them done right away but I sure have been sidetracked with other things around here since before Christmas.

Until later...

Your Scrapololic quilt is beautiful. I am working a couple of scrappy projects. My Folk Art Sampler has wool applique accents, with a basket of flowers in the center medallion. I got so carried away cutting, I ended up with 26 extra 12" blocks---LOL---
(after choosing all my favorites for the sampler.) After making one more I have 9 blocks for 3 lap quilts for my neices. All scrappy is so much fun.

Seeing other quilters work is very inspirational. Thanks for sharing
