Design Wall Monday - Aug 11
So I did a bit of hunting through my stash - and found nothing usable. And I refused to buy any more fabric for this quilt. But, I had lots of fabric left over from the rest of the quilt - not sure why I had so much, but I'm not complaining. I tried a few options, and came up with this arrangement which I am very happy with. The original border fabric will head into the stash for another project, another day. It's still a purple quilt, but I knew that heading in. And now I think the look more closely mirrors the original plan.
And then, continuing the spirit of not buying any more fabric (well, trying not to anyway), I found some fabric in my stash for the backing. Not quite enough of it, but I still had even more of the quilt fabric left over. And an extra block, because I changed the shape from a bed runner to a lap quilt.
Now this is all off my design wall and neatly folded, into the "quilt me" pile. And I'm debating my next project - finish Toes in the Sand, or start something new. I've been doing so well on my finishing kick that I think finishing is going to win out.
