It is time to take this quilt top off the double design wall so I needed to try the border auditions. This print, another by Keiko Goke, was my original choice for the border. After seeing it next to the quilt I changed my mind. I tried a stop border too and didn’t like that either.
Then I tried the black background print that is like the white one in the quilt top (positive/negative prints). I think that is what I am going to use.
I got all of the fabrics pressed and cut for the remaining 12 blocks for this new quilt. If you haven’t been following along, here is the post where I show the book and the first blocks. In this post I first showed this block (third one down) as a possibility for a layout. I took the 16 pieces from 4 blocks and played with them before I sew the rail fence blocks. This first layout is every other block turned a quarter turn.
This layout has all blocks in the same position. The solid border between blocks that is formed could go horizontal or vertical.
