Wonky Shoo Fly

This is one of the colored versions from yesterday's post.

I think it's time to give it some borders.

What if I repeat the sashing to make the borders?

This doesn't feel substantial enough to be borders; and it feels a bit cramped.

What if I move the border sashing out a little?

It's not cramped but it's still not substantial emough.

What if I use 2 rows of the sashing?

I like this and the cramping doesn't bother me any more.

What if I insert color between the 2 rows of border sashing?

I like this even more.

What if I change the background from grey to white?

The extra contrast gives the border a bit more definition.

These colors are bright and lively; this is obviously a child's quilt.

What if I grey down the colors?

The border has even more definition.

This is much more somber; obviously an adult's quilt.

For more border ideas go to My Posts by Subject in the sidebar on the right and click on Borders.


  1. I like the colored one better than the single color. Nice.

    Color is the first thing that everyone notices about a quilt. It is also the most important factor in deciding whether or not you like a quilt.
