HERE IS MY MARDI GRAS QUILT!! (Thanks Shelly for the name of the quilt, I used your green)



It took me all week to decide on the corner pieces, now it will take me another week to think about what to put for the borders? There is an awful lot of thinking going on in my house....it is smoking..... Any suggestions?

A side note: This quilt is totally opposite of what I do and I like but it sure was fun.

Great quilt Barb! I love it. I think I would probably use the light purple for a small border, then the dark purple for an outer border and bind it in green. That's what I would do, but you can do what you want, that is the great thing about making your own quilt.

Looks like you have had alot of fun with your Kaleidoscope ruler! Great job! I am amazed and want to try it myself now! LOL Great choice of fabrics! I personally am in love with the pansy fabric and would do that as a border just cause I love it! LOL Anything you chose will be perfect! AGain... wow!!

Wow, what a fun quilt! I agree with Linda, I'd like to try that ruler now as well. I'll have to start checking around online for one. I also agree with her about the pansy fabric. I love it! Very,very pretty.

Wow, did that turn out great!! Way to go "out of your box" if it was me, I would use green. Love it!

Great choice of the green, great name and great quilt! Sometimes it's fun to step outside our boxes, huh? Wondeful job!

You did a really great job on that quilt...

I was thinking if you had any of the purple left it might make a nice border - but then I'm a purple kind of gal!!!

Gina said...

It is a fabulous piece of work.
It is so visually effective.
Beautiful.
