Jelly Bean Top

Well, here is the top. None of the blocks are sewn together. I looked at the top on the wall, and it was OK, but when I looked at it through the camera, I liked it much better. The blocks are 6"x12" finished size, so the top as you see it is 4' wide by 5 1/2' long. I found the green/blue fabric when I shopped in Grand Junction yesterday, so I think it's going to be the border. I need to have some other color (maybe only an inch wide) around the blocks to frame them. I don't know what yet. My default is always black, but maybe white. Looking at the quilt top again, there are only 3 places where the green is on the outside, so maybe I'll just stick with the green. I do have all those 6 1/2" strips though. Hmmm, maybe something with them.

Hi Mary. I was going to say white before I finished reading your sentence. Maybe it's because my friends and I just bordered a quilt in white. It was just a one inch border of white showing but it really does set off the quilt.

I like this! Good use/balance of colors -- it's a happy top!

I like this quilt just as it is. Use the fabric for binding it. Either way it is bright and colorful.
