Sorry about the telescoping of the photo. The quilt is too large for the design wall. It is 94" x 99". It will shrink some with the quilting, though.
Do you remember that I nearly ran out of the black background used for the applique strips and the 8-pointed stars? I told you about it here. Well, I found what I think is the perfect solution for the borders.
The blacks actually match better in person than they look like in the photos. Can you see the musical notes? Originally I found a black with a treble clef, but it seemed too close to the other black and really didn't "pop" as a border even with the colorful striped inner border.
But this print seemed to bring it all together.
It works for me. What do you think?
Sorry for the odd angles on the photos. I was sitting on the loft rail and not feeling all that secure! It is a rare rainy day in the desert, so the light wasn't very cooperative either. I won't complain about the rain, though, we certainly can use the moisture even if it isn't an ideal day for taking photos.
Hope you have enjoyed the story of the vines and stars quilt. Have an awesome day!
