QJ - Floral Applique - Part X-A

QUILT JOURNAL - Floral Applique - Part X-A

OUTER BORDERS - PART A

So –

These are some of my border fabric choices –

Dark batik with blue/green/gray
Dark gray mottled - HST and skinny strip fabric
Light gray mottled - Block background fabric
Red batik - Rose fabric
Yellow batik - Leaf fabric
Green batik - Leaf fabric



What about -

#1 - A skinny light gray mottled and then the dark gray mottled?




#2 - A dark mottled gray and the darker multicolored one?




(Yeah, I know some of the HST are going the wrong way - oh, well!  ;))

or - some more from EQ7 -

#3 - A colored inner border




#4 - Three color inner border




#5 - Use the extra HST from the sashing -



but those are easy choices -

I’ve been thinking about some other ones -

NOT so easy -

And a LOT more work -

I’ll show you when I can get the pictures I have in my head –

Down on paper -  ;))



Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

  1. I hesitate to give advice but I think with the light background of the flowers, you could use a touch of lighter fabric in the border.

I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
