Here is the sewn top for this very colorful scrap quilt. I think it needs either to be enlarged with more blocks or needs borders. By seeing this, I am thinking more blocks. What say you??
I took the backdrop of my front garden. I will get better at this but now that the weather is getting nicer I have been inspired by Xue to photograph my quilts in the backdrop of Arabia, that is, Muscat! Thanks Xue!
Here is another view of the top.
I then started playing around with some pastels that I had in my stash and all the white and cream in there is from my stash! How exciting!
Another view of this one. I think I will enlarge this also and have a picture further below to show you the fabrics that I have picked out.
I put it on the gate too. Didn't want it to feel bad since it IS smaller than the colorful one!...
Here are the fabrics that I want to use to enlarge this quilt. I forgot to put a white in there. Ok. So I plan on putting about a 6" white border that will NOT be from my stash of scraps but from what I have on hand. Right now Muscat is not selling white on white or cream on cream at all so I am happy I have a stash built up. Anyway, then I will be putting about a 3" border of the lavendar and then another 6" of the white. The white with really pretty little pink flowers will be the backing but I am not sure about the binding yet.
What do you think?
Thanks for stopping by and I would really appreciate some input!
