My OMG goal for September is to finish my quilt top. (I'll be linking up here at Red Letter Quilts.)
I've got two blocks to make, sashing and cornerstones to add and then decisions about the borders. This quilt will become a couch quilt - I'm thinking of flannel as a backing fabric!
This quilt is from Fat Quarter Shop and was this year's QAL. It is called Crossroads. I made my blocks with a layer cake of Moda Elementary. The actual pattern involves about a bi-zillion HST for one of the borders. I've not the time or the fabric to do that so I'm going with something a bit simpler.
I'm considering these options for the outer border. (And yes, I took the time to redraw the blocks in EQ7 as each block was released. Helped in figuring out how to best cut from a layer cake.)
Four options to share:
This option adds a 3'' outer border and would result in a finished quilt of 49 x 65 ''. Probably just wide enough for a lap quilt....
Option 2 and option 3 would be 53 x 69''. There is now an 3 '' inner border followed by a black or blue middle border at 1'', followed by an outer border at 2''
Finally, option 4 carries the black cornerstone a bit into the border. In this case, the inner border is only 1.5'' while the middle and outer border remain as the option 2 and 3. This one would be 51.5 by 68''.
What do you think?
Have a wonderful day! Patty
