Perhaps you might remember me first talking about this idea I had back here. Well, I got the quilt top sewn together tonight. I think it needs borders, but I'm not sure what I want to use for that.
Here's what I have so far --
I took lots of pictures of it, so bear with me.....
You can see the embroidered swirl in the photo above.... it was from a runner (or dresser scarf, as my mom always called them) that was in disrepair. I was able to salvage most of it, and even used all the plain white fabric from it.
The small squares on the diagonal in this block are from the thrifted apron.
This top currently measures 78" x 84". I'd like it to be a little larger - I want to use it on my queen-size bed. My options would either be to add another row - maybe one on the side and one on the top, which would make the quilt 84" x 90", or add a border or two. I'm not sure if I have enough of any one fabric to make a border. Piano keys or a pieced border is a possibility. I'm just not sure. I'll have to think on this one for a few days.
My inspiration for this came from this lovely quilt. Mine is not quite how I pictured it, but I do like it...... a lot! And since they didn't use a border on there's, maybe I shouldn't either. What do you think?
