I had posted my work on a great blog, Naptime Quilter. First off, let me apologize, the WIP she had discussed that day had NOTHING to do with ME needing help! Sorry - I had a brain freeze/focus on myself and not her request. If it is not too late - perhaps my update will work for last week's request?!? (I think the cream would represent the negative space that she was referring to?)
Anyway, I did get a few comments/suggestions from that post, and I did find some cute ideas in searching patterns. I ended up doing a little combining of ideas to get....
I actually am liking how it turned out. I added sashing between some of the items - thanks for the idea - but let some items group together.
This took LOTS of stitch removal - I think my vision got just a bit worse over the past couple of days.
NOW, my issue is the back. Because I used most of the backing material for the sashing on the front, I am trying to figure out what to do instead. Help needed please!
So I have this so far. And think I am happy with it. cute coordinating material with a 4" border to replicate the sashing on the front. This is Not big enough! I still have a bit to go on width and about 14" on the length!
Cannot decide if I should just use the cream border and add the necessary width and length with the same fabric as the middle (leaned some of the fabric on once side to create this idea
if I should get some teal, green, or multi-color fabric, add a 2.5" or so inch border next, then finish off with this teal/green fabric.
Suggestions? Does one sound better than the other?
