Now that the sister quilt is in the binding stage, I’m back to working on my 16 patch. I am following the advice of Wanda, from Exuberant Color, and adding a 3 inch white border and a wide, wild outer border. I got the white border added before work yesterday and I am hoping to get the outer border added today.
I am debating how to cut this. The logical thing would be to cut it lengthwise at those narrow bands. But then on the bed, all the birds are facing the floor or ceiling. If I cut crosswise, I will have to piece the borders but they could be right side up when the quilt is on the bed. Decisions, decisions.
On another note, I appreciate the feedback on the quilting on the sister quilt. Not everything turns out exactly how we plan in our minds. But that isn’t all bad. I like to share successes but also the things that are not so successful. Perhaps others can learn from my mistakes as well.
Have a wonderful day!
