Odd Girl Out

Posted on Updated on

pink-white-rail-fenceI don’t know if any of you remember the hot pink quilt top I started in September last year, and how much trouble I was having with deciding on a border.  So, I put it away for awhile.

Then about a month ago, I was reading a magazine article by Kaffe Fasset, and I knew right then and there I wanted one of his fabrics for the border on this quilt!

Well, a couple of weekends ago, I found the perfect borderDSCF4864 fabric, and I actually got it applied to the quilt!

I just love it!

I think I’ll put a cozy pink flannel on the back, and use Winline’s 100% Bamboo batting.  I haven’t auditioned any specific thread colors yet, the quilting design might influence that decision.

Now I have to figure out how to quilt it.  I know a pantograph that would look great on it, but this year I’m really wanting to focus on improving my free motion skills, and this is a perfect opportunity since it’s not designated for any specific person or event.  Got any suggestions for me?

    Love the border fabric! Can’t go wrong with Kaffe. If you’re thinking of an E2E freehand, this is one that I designed just for Kaffe fabrics, http://lrdesignsquilting.com/blog/archives/448, it would be a good border design, too, if you wanted to do separate block designs.
    We have the same blog layout! Love it!

    Linda, love that design! It really would look good with that border, too! I’ll have to study on that one, I know I can do it, too.

    I had to do a double-take when I clicked on your blog…thought it was my browser not working, when I saw the same template. Hee hee!
