QJ - Floral Applique - Part X-A

QUILT JOURNAL - Floral Applique - Part X-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 -

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.
