Description

After auditioning different colors and fabrics and going back to the fabric store several times I finally decided to fall back on my "subtle" approach. It was time for the eye to rest from all those glorious HST's and Hourglasses from the previous borders. I kept on going back to blue but felt a new color was needed so yellow won out. Who knew there were so many shades of yellow! The first border is a creamy yellow tonal and the pieced border is a warm yellow tonal although it looks like a solid.

These centers are getting big! Hope you like yellow +Rebeccajeffsmith!

I like yellow! Your choices are beautiful! This is fun. Have to start thinking, thinking, thinking. Looking forward to the last half of October!

Readerowl Thanks! I'm sure you'll come up with a great border. How's your border fr Carol's center coming along?

Terryt1955 and Carolmarie : Carol's center with borders is on my ironing board, all together and attached. I need to add a thin white border outside, and take pictures. Tomorrow is the deadline.

Readerowl I thought Oct 19th was the deadline? Have I messed up again! Can't wait to see what you've done.

Terryt1955 . lol Tomorrow is just MY deadline. I won't mail until near the REAL deadline. What I've done is simple but what the quilt told me it wanted :)

Well you already know what I think but I will say it again I love it. Love the addition of more yellow and you added a calmness at a point where the quilt center needed it. Excellent work!! Love it.

Rebeccajeffsmith , so glad you are happy with it! It is very exciting to see how it evolves isn't it? Can't wait to see what the others do as well!

What a great color choice. There are little bits of yellow scattered throughout the top. Your border also continues the geometric feel of the top. Very nice!

Beautiful!

True Thanks for the mailing clarification. I had written down the 28th but then with all the changes I could have very well lost track. And then when Karen made mention about her due date I panicked. Still have to fix that one side....
