This is a quilt I am making for my DD. It was a kit that I bought but I would like to make it longer. At the moment it is 57" x 49" and I would like to add about 12" to each end.
I made the strips using all the corners that I chopped off so I don't have any more of those fabrics available, they are 4"wide.
The second photo is of 3 batiks I have in my stash.
My question is, how would you do borders just to increase the length of the quilt and what colour/colours should I use. I was thinking of using 1 1/2" strips of the 3 colours on either side of my rainbow strip, but I think it might be too busy. I could buy another colour (as if I need an excuse to go fabric shopping lol) but which one? (DD likes the blues and green more than pinks and purples)
Any suggestions would be appreciated as DD wants her quilt, as it's starting to get cold here LOL
