Sorry you are having a rough go of it lately, but this is just beautiful!  Here's hoping things settle down for a bit...
12  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Advice for border colors? on: August 29, 2013 03:11:22 PM
That is so cute!  Does she know about it or is it a surprise?

I'm probably too late, but I'll still throw in my two cents.  Wink  The center is so graphic that I think a pieced border will compete too much with it.  I would stick with either solids or something that reads solid (tie/hand dye, tone on tone print, etc).  I would do two or three strips, and if you want to add another color royal blue or red would be nice.  I'd only do a 1" or 1.5" strip so that it's just an accent, but some people don't like strong accents like that.  If you have a couple of solid borders you can do the binding in a print or stripe, and since it's not right next to the center squares they won't fight.

Looking forward to seeing whatever you choose!

Beautiful work!  I'll bet the lucky couple was beyond thrilled.

Score!  I don't know why, but everyone else's scraps seem to be more interesting than my own.  Cheesy

Nice!  So glad this one didn't put a hex on your place while it was being made.  Grin

Can you share the source of the patterns?  Are they online?

Sorry, but I'm not much help, either.  I've only made one and it was a mess.  I pinned as much as usual, but the quilting really distorted the whole thing.  I also had problems with pulling at the seams (only used 1/4", though), so I had to quilt a large zig zag over the seams.  Luckily it was only a disappearing nine patch, so it didn't ruin the design.  It seems like a lot of quilters are just fine with flannel, so I'm thinking it's just me.  I've just not been tempted to try it again.  Undecided

So glad (and a bit jelly) that you had such a great time!
