I think I am going to make a wallhanging (about 40" square) to enter a challenge contest in a show not too far from where I live. The challenge is to depict a book or scene from a book in a quilt (wallhanging to bed size). I am planning on doing an applique center with several borders. The applique will depict my favorite passage from the story. The first border will be a plain thin border of a contrasting color to the applique and the third border will be a plain thin cream border. I'm having trouble deciding which I should do for the 2nd & 4th borders. One will be QST made from charm packs, so it will finish at 3 1/2". The other will probably finish at 4" and will be bricks of tot/solids that coordinate with the QST & the applique on which I'll embroider some phrases from the passage I'm depicting. Can you help me decide? I'm including a simple graphic that shows the two designs.
