That my borders were NOT cooperating -
I went over to visit my bloggy buddy Linda's blog -
linda quilts - HERE -
And she was talking about staring at her wall -
So I'll keep them both on my design wall and sit and stare at them for hours until I have a firm decision made. heehee.
So I left her a comment -
I LOVE your background squares - PERFECT colors to show off the embroidered blocks! I vote for cross-hatching, too - very old-fashioned - very simple. And you crack me up with your "sit and stare at them for hours until I have a firm decision made" - I do the same thing - but my "hours" turn into "days" very quickly - haha - ;))
Then my "other" Linda -
LindaJ - life, quits and a cat too - HERE -
Emailed me and said -
Looks like your design wall is getting a work out today!
I laughed and emailed her back -
Haha - maybe if I stare at it long enough it will tell me what the h*** it wants - ;))
She said -
that might work well in theory?? Let me know if it yields any results so I can try it too.
And right about then -
When I looked at the wall - AGAIN -
It HIT me -
I HEARD it -
LOUD and CLEAR -
So I emailed her back -
It works!! - The top border just told me to "move me UP a little" - and I did - and I think it looks a LOT better - ;))
So - what do you think?
Do your quilts tell you what to do -
If you stare at them long enough? - ;))
Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -
