Do you remember this quilt top I finished for Jackie's Blogger's BOM? I LOVED doing this Block Of the Month. But you know.... When in NYC I found out that I must just have TOO MUCH going on because I totally forgot I'd set the blocks.
How could I forget I'd set the blocks?
CLICK HERE for my first post about the Block of the Month
I was just up in NYC to visit Victoria(and be sure to see the photos on her blog from this visit) and she asked me if I wanted to meet her quilt friends on Saturday..
H E Double Toothpicks..... yeah!!! I always love meeting quilters!! So she invited a bunch of the quilters over to her place and we did some show and tell.
This is where my brain left my body... I'm hoping it returns soon.... I sort of need it.
Margaret (on the left) finished HER blogger's block of the month and I have SERIOUS envy. What a WONDERFUL setting! The blocks are in the border, I LOVE her HST center.. and told her I was going to go home and copy this... YES... COPY IT! (I am yelling.. that's so Margaret can hear me as she doesn't have a blog for me to write on)
I got home Sunday night and headed right for the bag with the blocks (of course I did... I'm not making that up... you've done that right?)
And what did I find in that bag?
To say I was shocked is an understatement... I really really really thought it was still blocks.
The top is kind of ... BORING.... let's look at improving it
I think it needs the red polka dot.
this is a cosmos cricket line from Moda and the dot is part of the line.
Option 1 - The dark red. I don't have any solid red and I'm not buying any.. but that red is similar and reads pretty solid.
Option 2 - there is green in the blocks. So option 2 is a green tonal that will pull that green out and repeat it. It is similar but softer than the solid green in the blocks.
Option 3 is the 2nd green fabric choice. This one is lighter than the block green, and has a zig zag that I really like.
The binding will be the same black fabric I used in the setting.
** WHICH inner border would you use? **
