Borders and Scripes Update - Piecing Done...
I am loving the colors on this quilt :). Here's closeup shot of my progress so far.
Does this fabric look familiar? It's the Bryant Park one that I cut up into long strips.
The main color border has a nice shade of brown in it so I wanted to continue bringing that color into the rest of the quilt, so I decided on a nice dark brown Moda color strip right next to it. Next to that I went with a green/mustard color to contrast most the previous colors. Next a beige solid. To contrast that beige I went with another Bryant Park fabric that uses some of the same design elements as the main fabric strip. Next beige again, the back to the green/mustard, then repeat the solid brown Moda again. Repeat again ending with the solid brown.
I pinned 2 strips together at a time, sew, then pin with another sewn strip. I repeat this process for the whole quilt.
Here's a picture of 2 strips being pinned together. Once this one is sewn then I move on to another 2 strips, pin and sew those together. Then pin and sew with the first to sewn strips.
And the result? See for yourself.
I couldn't get the whole quilt in the picture at this time 'cause of space restraints. But you could get a good feel for the quilt in the picture above. The completed quilt will be about 74"x80".
Another view of the quilt top so far:
Some of the strips got wrinkled during the piecing process, but some nice pressing next will get rid of those pesky wrinkles.
Yeah! Another Weekly Goal completed!
