Here are three photos of borders for my New Years Day mystery from Planet Patchwork.
Choice one as written in the instructions -- using the background fabric as the bigger border.
Choice two -- using a pink homespun plaid (very little contrast in the plaid...)
Choice three -- using a beige/light tan fabric that happens to have little trees on it.
When I started grabbing strips for this quilt I decided to use up as many of my green strips as I had precut. Then I started throwing in some floral prints with green in them. And, eventually I pulled some of the colors from the prints and added bits of those colors. I added mostly pinks, burgundies and golds if I remember.
I know which one I like best but which do you like? My favorite is the pink as I think it makes the top sing. The two others are fine but ho-hum. The pink is a loosely woven homespun so I will need to do some serious quilting in the borders. And, I think I'll have to piece the borders but that is fine with me.
Let me know what you think. I won't be working on this again until at least Wednesday, maybe later.
