    Update on Purple Ribbon Box Quilt....

    When I posted this earlier, it was just pieces on my design wall. Now I have all the pieces sewn together, and it looks much more like a quilt. The purples still don't photograph "true," but they are close.

    It has ended up larger than I thought it would be. I had to turn my design wall sideways and put it on small stools to get this picture. (Hot Rod, my quilt inspector, helped, of course.)

    Now I am thinking of borders. The pattern, Ribbon Box quilt..free online... doesn't call for borders, and I may go with that yet. I could bind it in any of the purples. But I really like borders.... I am going to play with the idea of one border in the darkest purple, cut the same size as the ribbons. Who knows if that is what I will end up with. (I will post the finished quilt though, so anyone interested will know.)

    I would think adding a purple border would "stop" the flow. I was thinking just a white binding would work. Those are just my thoughts; I know you have made many beautiful quilts; and will figure it out. some quilts have to simmer a bit.

    Good friends are right there with you.

    very pretty purples
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Love the quilt-and the name for your cat
    It's not a stash-it's a fabric library!
