Snow White Border

Another border under my belt :)  YIPPEE!!!

With the Snow White fabric being pale blue, I had to find colors that would not make the blue stand out too much.


Monday, I started working on this border at Annette's house.


I was able to finish two sides on Monday :)  Party!


I had to do a little finagling with the Snow White fabric to get it the right size and for it to be featured properly.


I used Jaybirds hexy'n more ruler to make the triangles.


I probably spent half of my time working out the layout for the border.


Tuesday I worked on the top and bottom border and the corner post things.


The corner post things are the hardest for me.


Annette and April suggested a nine patch.


Making up borders on your own, takes a bit more time than following a pattern, but I am liking all of the happy design surprises :)


Between the wind and the sun, it was hard to get a really good shot of the quilt top.


The colors in the close up shots are a better representation of the true color scheme.

I sort of wish that I could look at the quilt as if I had never seen it before.  This may sound strange, but this quilt is WAY more colorful than I had envisioned.  I am nut sure what I thought it would look like, but all I have to say is that it is a GOOD thing I LOVE pink and green :)

  2. Oh, *nicely* done!! Terrific balance with the blue of that background. Yeah, the finagling to figure out how to make things fit can be adventurous and maddening at the same time, eh?
