Hello fellow strip piecing lovers out there--I have gotten my blocks together (I had strip pieced them on telephone book paper which I cut into 8 1/2 " x 2 12" strips to use up a lot of scraps and strings I had leftover) and I am now auditioning fabrics for my borders.
This has been such a fun project; I started it after seeing Bonnie Hunter's video on using up scraps this way. I also have about 27 dark colored strip pieced blocks for the reverse--it will be a lap quilt for me; my own lap quilt is really wearing thin.
What do you think about the colors for the borders?
i also auditioned two other colors here:
But they just didn't seem to fit as well --altho' there are a lot of these colors in the blocks also....
Here is a closer look at the blocks and the two colors--I especially like that purpley blue...I will post when I get the back together.....in the meantime, in between time
you can see more about this on my blog...see ya'll
hugs to you all Julierose, La blageuse
