    I finally got my swap blocks sashed last night. I will use 2 of them on the back and had to omit one that was too small
    Now, what to border it in?

    Whew! Here is my Boom 9 quilt top, just finished last night. I love it! The finished size is a draping queen. I wasn't sold on using black until I found the perfect black for it (the second picture is a closeup). Sorry for the mess.. Quilting trumps cleaning.

    Now, what color backing should I use? And what color thread to quilt? White thread will show up on the black sashing, but black thread will show up all over the blocks.. What do you think?

    The back should be the same red used in the broken dish blocks. If you need to stretch it - maybe make broken dish blocks in black and white using the same black as the sash strips then piece the back.

    How do you plan to quilt it? I would definitely use white in the sash strips. I think you need something simple for each block - crosshatch or similar.
    I love quilting - it's cheaper than therapy!

    I don't have that much red left, unfortunately. The swap fabric (red flowers on white) and the broken dish fabric (white flowers on red) were both in that yard sale bundle I got a couple years ago. I have twelve 6in squares left of the broken dish fabric, and one swap block that I ran out of room for. I thought about doing a pieced back with those.. Hmm..
