I have a quilt top put together! But now I need to decide if it needs a border or not. I was not planning to border this one, but that was before I added the sashing. Now I wonder if it needs a bit more. I have enough of the white fabric left to make a 2 or 2.5" border around the quilt. The blocks are 9" finished, and the sashing is 1/2". What do you think?
Now that this quilt is done (or almost, if I decide to add borders), I'm planning my next project. Have 3 in mind, not sure which will win out.
First, I have fabric from the Modern Quilt Guild for their Riley Blake challenge. 6 fat eighths from the Cottage Garden line. I have decided on a plan, and needed some background to go with it. So that meant a shopping trip this past weekend to pick up a Riley Blake coordinate in order to meet the challenge rules. Plus the ruler I needed, since the challenge is to try something you've never done before.
My other current thought is the "Chain Reaction" pattern. I like the block design, although I would do it in a slightly less busy set of fabrics.
I also want to make another of the quilts shown above. But I think I need a break from this particular design for a while, so that will go on the back burner.
My stash report this week is looking good, thanks to the finished top. I might even hit black next week, if I can finish assembling the other turquoise quilt.
