Got Your Sunglasses On???
I finally got the borders put on my Summer Sunshine quilt -it's only been 3 months (and 2 quilts and a garden in between) since I last worked on it. The colors actually look subdued in this photo - but believe me - they are BRIGHT!!!
The piano key border was an adventure. Even with a rotary cut edge and a 1/4" foot, the strips wanted to get wonky. Fortunately the busyness of ALL those different fabrics (the 50 fabrics in the blocks plus some of the yellows from the star points plus some of the fabrics that are in Lazy Sister Sue's quilt blocks but not in mine) helps detract from the wonky-ness, and it all turned out really nice. I have a blue dragonfly fabric for the background and will bind the quilt either in the same yellow as the inner border, or in the dragonfly blue if I have enough.
Hoping for low wind tomorrow so I can hang "It Takes Two" and "Summer Sunshine" on the clothesline to get them spray basted.
