I'm using Flickr for this post,,, not sure if I like it or not, but since Webshots was giving me fits on uploading pictures, I had to do something different.
Any-hoo... this is the block swap quilt that my bee did,,, this sucker is HUGE and there are not even any borders on it yet! I put 3 inch borders around each block, cause not everyone's 12-1/2 inch is the same - if you know what I mean. I like the sashing around them,,, I really think the blocks stand out and not all misshed together.
So I was playing with EQ6 and messing around with border designs. I don't want just a plain border, cause I don't want to use any print fabric.. I want the blocks to be the focus completely,,, and I think a plain black border would look really really weird.
I came up with this one
and shared with my friend whom only speaks truth and she said "too much pink", so I played some more and got this one and she said " good border but too fussy for this quilt". So far,,, I do agree. Have you ever done something that you know if just not right, but someone else needs to tell you??
So, friend,,, what do YOU think???
I'm going to leave it for a couple of days,,, look at the pictures I made and see what ya'll think! In the mean time,,, I'll get out another project to finish!
