quilt top finished - sort of
I sewed the border onto the Fruit Punch quilt today. Decided I liked the sparkly cherry red fabric with purple bits so I was gonna use it darn it. Didn't use the purply inner border cuz the top O is that fabric and it would have disappeared, which I wasn't in the mood for.
I sewed the border on extra large, so now I can play around with how I want to cut it down. Even like up above?
I love Gwen's lopsided borders - hers always seem so balanced and off-center at the same time. I haven't had nearly the luck playing around with it. But am trying it out on Picasa, before I actually slice into it. Seems like it should work well with this quilt because it already goes from small in one corner to much larger down in another.
