Why is it that the easiest quilts in the world give me so many problems?
This quilt for instance.
The blocks were made in like two hours and then I put it aside for months, mainly because I hate sewing rows on the diagonal. I get myself all discombobulated doing that no matter how many notes, arrows and other reminders I stick to the rows. Anyway, I drug it out again last weekend and got it all done to this point -- and thought I was done. What's that other fabric in the project tub? Wait, there is another border? Sheesh ...
Anyway, I was chatting with my online quilty group about being done with it, and then admitting that, no, I wasn't. Speculation about what the final border would look like. The striped fabric came in this Quilts in a Bag kit. But someone mentioned that they hoped the outer border was the large floral fabric.
Well, that got me to thinking that maybe I had some of that up in the stash. Yep, I found four yards of it up there. It's amazing what's hiding up there in Neverneverland (not to be confused with Neverland). So I piled it all on the dining room table. There were various opinions about which one I should use.
What do you all think? Whichever one isn't used is, unfortunately, going back in the stash because I've already pieced the backing for this quilt. I'm leaning towards the stripes sewn on lengthwise just like they are shown in the picture. I'm sick of this quilt and just need it done! Opinions, please!
