This is the border that I had originally planned for the quilt. I realized today (with the help of Jim!) that I didn't have enough of the red fabric. Although I do have a fat quarter so I can piece the border. Then I wasn't sure if I really liked the red for the border. I was going to have a small inner border of the sock fabric and then use 4 of the monkey squares for the corner blocks.
This next picture is the red fabric that I bought for the back - which I could use for the border fabric and then use something else for the back. I could still use the brown sock fabric as an inner border - and either use the 4 monkey squares in the corner - or not. I am not sure I want to use this fabric because then I have to figure something else out for the back.
The I am wondering about not using the red - but all I have are fat quarters. So what about some stripes and plain fabric. But I find the brown sock fabric looks out of place with the soft pastels.
Then there is stripes and dots -- see how the brown sock fabric looks out of place?
After this whole exercise - I think I might like the red the best. I think it is good to take pictures and then have a good look at them -- and ask for opinions!!!
This one has different corner blocks - I think I prefer the first corner blocks -- brighter and funner!!
I would do a poll - but I don't think I know how to do that. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
