I am SOOOO glad I listened to everyone on the board that encouraged me to continue with this quilt. The results far exceed what I thought it would be like when I first started sewing the blocks together! I now know you can't tell a quilt by it's early beginnings!
Now I'm trying to figure out the borders. I'm completely out of the dark blue fabric that I used for sashings. I have scraps from the shirts left and I have larger pieces of some fabrics left (see pic)...but I think I need to go purchase really dark blue for the border (to really anchor it all) and then use the rustic red material for the inset triangles for the binding. But I really would like input...since y'all were so instrumental in me finishing this! :-) What are your ideas?
The quilt so far is approx. 67 x 97 without any border. It's intended to be a large throw for my tall son.
I have "just" enough blue paisley for the border but I'm not sure it's the way to go. I think I need something darker...what do y'all think?
