I had a few batiks in mind to try for borders, but first I had to get my hair cut and then run a couple hours worth of errands. I went to the shelf of multicolor batiks and this is the first one I spied that I knew I would try.
This is the one I was looking for when I found the one in the above photo. The colors change a lot so the borders would have different colors in them.
Next I found the piece on the bottom but I don’t think I like that one. Then the question came into my mind, do I run the stripe in all the same direction so the borders will actually be cut 2 different directions from the fabric, 2 on the lengthwise grain and 2 on the crosswise grain? So……I have procrastinated one whole day in getting borders cut and sewn on. There are lots more options in my extensive batik stash so maybe today I’ll get serious about it.
