I think I've made enough borders to make an entire quilt!
I started with blue strings...
I sewed them to phone book foundations
And trimmed them. Don't they look so nice and neat all trimmed?
Layed them out
And tried them on the quilt. It was okay, but not quite what I wanted.
I guess I could use them to make a quilt
Next, I tried a checkerboard border. It was okay, but I still wasn't sure.
I tried piano keys
And then a braided border. So far, it's between the braided border and the checkerboard border.
Then I tried a different braided border. This one adds a light square down the center and matches the left and right sides.
Here's a recap of the checkerboard, piano keys and French Braid
And the two French Braids in dim lighting
And a slightly brighter one.
I'm still not sure. Should I just pick one and get busy making it? Should I try a few other options?
