Design Wall

I made a bit of both borders and I think you all were right. The checkerboard doesn't seem to detract from the quilt as much as the scallops do. They're not very hard to do, but time consuming. When I asked my husband he thought they were kind of blehh and suggested something with triangles. I may try that too. This one has been hard for me to get motivated with the borders. I guess I should be more like Judy and make the borders first! I couldn't make the borders because I'm not sure of either of them. Yuck.

Thanks for all of your help last week. Maybe I'll let this one stew a bit longer and work on quilting some tops I want to get done.

sometimes putting a quilt aside for a bit is what it takes. I've had many a "now why didn't I see that in the 1st place moments".

I like the checkerboard.

Triangles could be neat. How would a piano key border work? Alternate the ombre with black. It would stay with the straight lines of the blocks, but might add more interest.

I like them both, but I thought what about a scrappy piano key border of your light fabrics? I'm just thinking that because I'm making one right now!

The squares look great on the border. Triangles sound interesting.

Hm. In your mock-up I liked the scallops better, and now I like the checkerboard better. Triangles sounds interesting!

What about a thin piping line between the main part and the border?
