Finally a Border!
So I have been busy, what else is new? With DH home, my time is not my own, but I did get a few things done with him home. For one, I finally added a border to "Oops, I Did It Again". I was a bit stumped with this one, but here is what I decided. I chose this border because except for the corners, all the pieces came from my box of 3 1/2" squares that was getting a bit full.
Before I decided on this border I toyed with other ideas. I didn't want to take this one to Electric Quilt so instead I pulled out other Thirtysomething quilts that had pieced borders and layed OOPS over the corner of the other quilt to just show what that pieced border would look like. Take a look.
This first one did nothing for me. Nor did the second one.
Granted this border is the wrong scale, but the idea would work. Perhaps reversing lights and darks. While I was looking at all these ideas, I remembered I had 3 1/2" squares I wanted to use. Yes, they are hard to see in the border in the quilt at the top of this page. I trimmed off one 30-60-90° triangle from each square before sewing them together.
Well, it feels good to get this piece off the to-do pile. I was afraid it would become a longtime PHD.
