The borders are on the blue/green scrap quilt. This is a donation quilt that was pieced from 2.5 inch strips. I’m not sure it doesn’t have too many light fabrics but I worked with what I had left. I think the first one I made from my Red/Purple strips turned out better – the rail fence pattern is more defined in that version.
This is another UFO and I don’t even remember what I had originally planned to use these strips for but when my Mom needed some blue and green 2.5 inch strips for a quilt for her sister’s grandson, we picked over the best strips and used them for that quilt first. I’m slowly gathering some strips in sizes I commonly use so the unused strips went into the bin with my other 2.5 inch strips.
The top will go on the shelf to age a while since I have a few waiting in line for quilting.
I was going to crop more of my mess out of this picture but I noticed Chesty was watching me from the bottom left corner so I left him in.
nice – I LOVE that blue border. That will be a nice masculine quilt for donation. :o) (It does not have the “rail fence” look, but it doesn’t need it either.)
I love the scrappy feel to this quilt… the rail fence doesn’t “hit you” with can be a good thing 🙂
I’m glad you didn’t crop Chesty out, he gave me a smile. 🙂
I really like that blue quilt. The first thing I thought about when I saw it was the coolness of water against my body when I get into the beach.
I love that quilt but I especially love Chesty watching you! 🙂
Awww, what a cute little face looking from the corner. It looks like he’s good at staying out of the way of feet!>>There’s not too many lights in that blue quilt, it’s just perfect. 🙂>>And I totally understand what you mean about letting quilt tops age a bit before quilting… lol
I love love the loyalty of the pup. the blue border really sets the quilt off. Looks like it should be on exhibit at an aquarium. It’s really beautiful.>Melanie
Ok, it’s unanimous! The blue/green quilt is gorgeous. DH and I recently flew to SC and when I saw this quilt, it reminded me of the farmland we saw from up above! LOVE it!
Your quilt looks very good from here 🙂 It does not come through as a rail fence, but is well balanced and nice to look at.>Maybe an idea for my purple scraps ?
I like it! The color scheme works well with the randomness of the placement. I see Chesty in the corner!>>Cheers!>>Evelyn
I love the blue quilt, and I think it has an underwater effect. >I used to read Jean Plaidy years ago. I completely forgot about her books.>I finished “Angels Fall” last night. It was not up to Nora Roberts usual standards. >Your puppy looks adorable.
I think this quilt turned out great-not too many lights for me! nice job Mary.
very nice quilt Mary. I like the colors.
I liked the red/purple one, but I prefer the blue green one – it’s calmer feeling. =)>>I like that – on the shelf to age!
Very nice! I like them both, but I think this one is my favorite. I noticed Chesty down there right away. He’s so cute, I’d love to cuddle him!!
i don’t think there are too many lights at all, and, it looks great!
You couldn’t crop out that sweet face–I think the top looks perfect just like it is, BTW.
Mary, I don’t think this one has too many light fabrics AT ALL! This is a striking quilt.>>Laurie in Seattle>http://quilts-soccer-chess-etc.blogspot.com/
