Playing with Borders
I added white all around the outside edge to make it 72" x 72". Now I want to design a border using 6" Broken Dishes blocks.
This border is too small. It lacks impact.
Better, but the border is too much like the quilt. It feels bland to me.
What if I replace some of the yellow in the border with black?
The border reads as a border now; it has a separate identity.
I'm still not happy with this border. Something about the colors bothers me.
I think this border does a good job of framing the quilt and reflecting its character while maintaining a separate identity.
For more quilts using Broken Dishes blocks go to My Posts by Subject in the sidebar on the right and click on Broken Dishes.
