What's on My Design Wall 12-7


Now I just need to figure out what to do with the borders. I have some aqua left, so maybe a thin white border (like the sashing) and then some different aqua fabrics. I don't have enough of any one fabric to do the whole quilt...but maybe I should just use that fabric for the binding. I don't have any red left, so that's out. Well, I'll think of something.

Yesterday I made some Christmas goodies for gifts. A batch of English toffee, a batch of peppermint bark, 6 quarts of caramel corn and then last night I made some "Bordeaux" chocolates. I tasted the centers, and they taste more like the brown sugar squares you can get as Sees. I haven't tried one of the the chocolates yet, but they look pretty!

I really like these colors together. Not sure I would have ever come up with this combination.

Lovely Mary!
I think a scrappy aqua border would be great...it would use up your leftovers and be a compliment to the quilt....maybe just a 2" finished or 4" finished...whatever size your scraps are?

Mary, your quilt looks really nice. I so want to get started on my D9P, but that won't be until after the New Year! Do you know if anyone else has started theirs?

Thanks for the idea. I have about 22 blocks that are really screwy, did you have the same problem? I was thinking of something with muslin but I'm liking your white sashing.

Ooooo... that's a different way of laying out the D9-P blocks! I like it! 8-)
