Marinating -


My version of Peggy Martin's Pinwheel Polka pattern (from her Craftsy class) is still marinating on the wall - and I don't think that I want to spend the time it takes to make a crumby border. Besides, those crumbs are really pretty and could be used in something else entirely - to add a bit of pink/green/white - and make that something else really pretty, too. Why use them all up on one quilt - why not spread them around a little? - ;))

SO - I checked my stash and found a pretty pink batik that could be enough for the inner border - and a pretty pink with white polka dots that I could use for the outer border - but the pink batik and pink with white polka dot don't go together -


Then I found another green that was pretty close to the other two that I used (the crumbs are all that I have left of the other two) - so maybe a green inner border with the pink with white polka dot outer border - or a white with pink polka dot inner border with the pink with white polka dot outer border -



I can't decide -

That's why it's still marinating - ;))

Any thoughts? - ;))



Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

    1. Thanks, Karen - I'm not a big fan of "pink" or "lime" green - but they seem to play together very nicely in this one - ;))

  2. I really like the pink batik. Do you have enough of the green left to use it as the outer border?

    1. Thanks, Gene - Unfortunately, no - both the "pink batik' and the "green" are only about 9" x WOF - and the "green" is a directional print. That should be enough for an inner border - but not an outer border. I'll have to check my stash for another green - ;))

  3. My vote is for the green as the inner border...
