I chose border fabrics for my latest cobblestone quilt, sticking with the Christmas theme fabrics.
Can you tell I like red??
I decided to go with a narrow inner border because I didn't want to run into the issue I had with the batik one, where one of the blocks bled into the border...
The fabric I chose for the inner border was sort of a dark off-white, not quite crossing over into beige.
It looks okay put together, although I "could" have made the inner border a teensy bit narrower. I cut it at 2", but looking at it now, 1-1/2" would have been better so that it would finish at 1". In any case, I just have to quilt it and it'll be ready to fly for Christmas!
I'm using this fabric for the backing:
It's designed by Karen Jarrar for Marcus Brothers, and it's been in my stash a long time - quite honestly I don't remember when I bought it! I also have another piece with a sort of mint green background, same deal.
I like this pattern well enough that I think I"ll make a series of these quilts. They're quick and unbelieveably easy to put together! My next one will either be a bed sized one, or a throw size.
Well that's all for now, have a great Monday - sew forth and sew on til later!
