Do quilts talk to you like they do to me?
This is the way the floral challenge quilt looked the last time I posted.
This is what it looks like now. I added another border. I needed to make it a size I could put 6" blocks around it so it is 42" X 48" now.
But, while I was doing that I first added a blue border (just on one side) using the fabric that is in the top right flower. Boy, did that ever look wrong.
I decided the black fabric need to be repeated but because I wanted it to be a certain size - that made the border wider than I planned (and it didn't help that I kept cutting it out the wrong width!) I just kept unpicking and unpicking.
Now, with that border, the quilt is telling me that it's finished. But I don't want to be done.
What a dilemma,
