I am doing a small version of the happy dance. I got my redwork quilt all put together today. I did have a bit of a misstep.... I wanted to use the "worms" I bought (see them up there in the header?).... Worms are cut 2 1/2 inches wide. The pattern calls for strips cut 1 1/2 inches wide. I really thought it would work. I kind of figured that if you were consistent with the size it would work out in the end. but it didn't. it wouldn't work. so I had to unsew some seams and cut all the strips down to 1 1/2 inches which is what the pattern said to do in the beginning. Oh well, so much for "design opportunity". LOL
Now it needs two borders. First will probably be a narrow solid red and then a red/white print. Then quilting. How would you quilt this? All over design or diagonal lines throughout the whole quilt?
I really like how this turned out. This will hang in my upper hall with all the other quilts made from 30's fabrics...
Why only a small happy dance? It needs borders and I don't have anything in the stash. I might go out tomorrow and see what I can find, but it seems we have some SNOW in the forcast, so I might wait til next week.
