Been sewing like crazy these last few days.
Here is the finished centre and the first border, which I now think is too wide and I'm going to cut down a bit.
Not too sure what to do for the next border as I don't want to detract from the centre. I thought about using a thin strip of the dusky pink I used in the quilt. Definitely NOT yellow! The large outer border will be black.
When I was piecing the blocks together I lost the plot somewhat and it isn't the same as it was. Some blocks got moved around and I forgot the original placement. I usually take a photo before I start piecing everything together so I can remember where it all goes. This time I forgot to and I think it's lost a certain je ne sais quoi!
I also think that putting the original words around the border - "S is for Stripes (or Strings)" - will be too much so I'm thinking of doing that for the back. Is this within the rules?
