I asked for some suggestions of what to quilt on the side borders. I got some fabulous ideas. I decided on following the "layers" from the center block out, but I didn't know if I should stitch them in a matching taupe or some other color. So I stitched up a sample.
|Sample (left to right) darker taupe, orange, navy, matching taupe. I decided on the matching taupe thread that I had been using on the straight line quilting. I felt it would get texture without taking away from the blocks.|
It's very overcast today, so I laid the quilt out on my king sized bed (this quilt is queen sized), because the light is better in this room.
|I got all of the borders added. Now to continue quilting.|
|I really like my choice.|
|The back side of the quilt.|
|The quilting is more subtle on the back|
