This has been a crazy busy weekend so I was only able to audition the outside border pieces. This is the third and final border strips except for the binding. Binding is the very last thing done to a quilt after the top, batting and backing are sandwiched and quilted together.
My original idea was to use the same fabric that was the first row of border. Remember I re-purposed some fabric pre-cut for another quilt’s binding. I was concerned that I had enough to go all the way around and more important did I even want that. Hence, the audition with the pile of strips from my stash.
My strip stash has lots of blue, aqua, purple, white, green and blacks. I quickly decided it needed to be a combination of that darker blue, purple and black fabrics. I dug around and found I had enough to make it work. Here is the audition and my stash bin for your viewing pleasure. Next weekend I will sew it on and move on to the art piece of this project.
