This is the quilt design I posted yesterday, with a few tweaks to the colors:
One reader commented that she wasn’t about the corners and I wrote her back that sometimes (though rarely), I like to break the rules. When I first put this border on here, I wasn’t sure I liked it either but I played around with a couple of options and then decided this quilt is kinda whimsical and it needed borders that weren’t quite so “refined”. I also told her that I’d show some of the other options I considered for this quilt.
Y’all can tell me what you think about the borders and maybe if a whole bunch of you like a different border, I’ll change my mind.
Option #1 is kinda what I would normally do. It has a more finished look but to me, it seems like the corners have a rounded affect and everything else in this quilt is real square-ish.
Option #5 has quarter square triangles in the corners. Here I was just playing around with making the borders different colors. Probably not something I would really do.
Option #6 just proves that the border options are limitless when using Electric Quilt. It also proves that it’s time for me to get off the computer and get busy sewing. What’s funny is that I really like this border . . but it is kinda weird.
Option #7 is the last one . . really! I was fixing to turn the computer off and saw another possibility . . with the “arrows” on one end. I kinda like that too. Do you see that I did all these borders in about 5 minutes without ever changing the block but just changing the colors in the block? How fun is that! Now you know why I say I make quilts just so I can make borders. I love making border!
