Design Wall Monday

You all are the best! As suggested, I folded back the triangles on each side and put the pink borders back. Yep, that’s what this needed.

I had some short yellow strips and placed them next to the existing outer columns of triangles. This gives better proportions.

Sadly, I don’t t have enough . I tried a bit of this yellow, but I’m on the fence about it. I also think I do want a wider pink border.

So I’ve made progress, if only in my head. But at least I know what I’m looking for. Thanks for all of your help!

Have a great day!

    I like the quilt in the wider picture. It seems more in proportion than the skinny one. Keep looking for an appropriate yellow to finish.

    here’s an idea. i really like the proportions you have in the top picture. could you possibly add to the length with the excess hst and add to the yellow with what you have? then maybe increase the pink side borders and check for proportion. maybe add more to the top and bottom borders or leave them smaller. does that make sense? i really like the movement with the hst the way you placed them. i know you’ll find the right idea. patti in florida

  5. Oh, bummer about not having enough of that yellow – it’s so perfect. Wish I had some to send to you! Love how this is turning out!
