It's time to share Border 2 for Round Trip Quilts! This center came from Sew Mary Quilts. It has an awesome gradient rainbow star to work from! I had to do something with color families to play into what she already started in the middle. Mary sent a small notebook full of ideas for borders, and I feel in love with the idea of an arrow.
Having never sewn arrows and needing a pattern that would fit perfectly to the 16.25 inch side, I grabbed some graph paper and kept my fingers crossed it would work out. I laid out the parts for four arrows, one for each side. Each arrow has two of the color families from the center block. The proportions worked out well perfectly, each arrow wasn't too long or too short.
I was stumped on the corner block, so I sent out an Instagram SOS. They gave me the great idea of a four-patch that ties into the already established corner blocks.
Now I need to write in the notebook sharing my ideas and design for the newest border! Hopefully Mary likes what has been added to her block :) The block is now headed to Christina at Wips & Tuts.
