This quilt center belongs to Kim @ Ties That Bind Quilting. She sent along some of the blue-grey fabric so the quilt would have a coherent background theme. When I went reorder more background fabric, I got a nice sky blue color (twice). Needless to say, neither was a match. So on to Plan B. I made a new plan working with the small scraps that were left over and pulling some nice saturated colors from my stash. The more saturated border adds a bit of a pop similar to Kim's original blocks.
|Bits and pieces that came in the bag, I added the block in the top right hand corner.|
Next, I need to find where I placed Kim's notebook and get this thing in the mail. Fingers crossed that it's only lost in my disastrous sewing area and not really lost. Hopefully everyone is enjoying thier summer weekend. I'm actually up in Vermont running a mud race with a group of gals from work. It's the kind with all those obstacles. Mud races have got such bad publicity lately it's making me nervous. For once I am more scared about getting sick, rather than being last! I'll let you all know if I survive.
