I was really liking this Charm Pack Cherry quilt as I was sewing these batiks. But then I got all the rows together and I felt it still needed something... a border! I knew I didn't have enough of the turquoise batik to do an unpieced border and then inspiration struck - I could add squares and rectangles of the batiks I used in the center of the quilt and extend the design. Now I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I think it looks quite arty and modern!
Sorry again about the color of this picture - I just can't get it right when I try to get the whole quilt in the shot.
Here are some close-ups of some of the squares and rectangles I added to the border strips and the color is truer.
I still need to sew the borders on, but that shouldn't take too long. I cannot wait to get this one off to the long arm quilter!
I'm linking up with Freshly Pieced today. Check out all the inspiration!
