Very pretty! And if you add another green border won't it downplay the pumpkin floral fabric? Was that part of the Posh Pumpkin line?
Yes- the large border is also Posh Pumpkins and you are right- don't want to take away from it because it so lush:)- thanks ...and I really and truly don't want to go back to the store;))))
I love the colors and agree adding another border will take away from the gorgoeus border you selected.
True Thanks Mary- ok here's another question then- use a blender that almost matches for binding? or do a quilt q/out binding- just flipped and quilted ( which I haven't done since the kids were little and I was making the cartoon character quilts;)
Mymble I would do the binding with the blender... just personally like the look of it better (last time I did the other was when Andrew was born!)
True That's what I thought- good to have your input too- Thanks Terryt1955 and True for steering me straight;) and LOL- yes- did so many flip and sew quilts when they were little- Buzz Lightyear and Ariel...etc...just sort of sew around the edge afterwards and it looked like a binding -perfect when it had to be done right away- especially if they were with me when we bought the fabric- very very hard to wait for the quilt!
Carolmarie I believe a blender in this case is a fabric that is very close in color to the border so it just blends in and doesn't distract you from the border itself. But you could use the border fabric as well and accomplish the same thing, right?
Whatever you do Mymble the quilt deserves a real binding. It's going to be so pretty!
Carolmarie Hi Carolmarie- yes- what Terryt1955 - in this case it would be a tan to blend in with the background fabric, though a muted burnt orange or brick red could work too. I could use the leftover posh pumpkins but it would be a really tight stretch as I only bought a yard- and might be a bit too much blending- so I think I'll most likely go with one of the other colors.
Ohh, I'm liking the idea of the burnt orange!
Thanks Terryt1955 - it's a great collection of prints - will probably go with a dusty orange or tan- try for something very muted.
Love idea of orange and yes just a "minor" little purchase. And love mini you made from scraps such awesome fabric!
True ahem... Thanks... it really is gorgeous -Sandy Gervais seems to use this palette a lot and its always nice- loved her Lollipop line too..and yes...the orange is stuck in my had now...and since this was an "all from one collection" quilt...well...the "minor" purchase just had to be;))))- (ahem)
Binding looks amazing and it looks so cozy in its new home!
Love it, Margaret! And that mini runner is to die for (don't you love using every last scrap!?!?!?). Great fall combination!
Great finish! It's such a pretty combination and the binding was a perfect choice. I also love the back
The burnt orange binding is perfect! Love how this quilt just invites you into the sun room. Just in time for Thanksgiving!
True Thanks Mary- it was a fun one- went together easily and the only real hold up was waiting for the binding but you know, once you see it in your mind then nothing else will do:)
Caribousmom Thanks Wendy- you in particular but others as well here on Threadbias have been an inspiration to make use of every bit...be it a pillow, or part of the back or whatever:)...and loving these fabrics made it even easier to do:)
HawkFan Thanks Audrey- the back was a jump for me as I usually have an allergic reaction to beige but hey- this was screaming for beige and I listened...I can adapt!
Carolmarie You are welcome in my sunroom anytime:) I hae actually daydreamed of all of us sewing away happily in there- we've served dinner to I think about 30 at a time here and I usually get 12 in the sunroom;)))...plenty of room for sewing machines;) For Christmas I think I may do one from the Pretty in Patchwork book but I'm like you...my UFO's are circling the wagon here...I just keep telling myself one at a time;)
I love your fantasy! And dinner for 30, oh my! My biggest one was 26 for Thanksgiving. I was thankful it was over!
Terryt1955 I hear you...I usually feel like the acme road roller machine from the road runner cartoons has flattened me like a pancake and it takes a few days to feel "reinflated".
