Thank you for all the help last week with border fabric choices. The blue really was the best choice. The fabric, however, is a cotton voile, which is much lighter than quilting cotton. A very lightweight fusible interfacing came to my rescue.
The camera has become a critical tool in my quilting process. I took a picture and converted it to grayscale and ouch! One of my greens was too dark. I took it out and replaced it – not a highly recommended process. It is a real pain, but worth it in the end.
I chose to do the second border as a pieced border. The third border is the blue again. I was so happy to get it off to the long arm quilter I never got a pic, but the “solid” outside border framed it just right. I can’t wait to get this quilt back – I have an idea of something to add to it, but am keeping that under wraps ‘cuz it may or may not work!
Hope you all had a happy and safe Fourth – Enjoy the rest of summer!!
