Two posts in one day! Sorry for clogging up your Reader with my earlier rant about clothes moths - I'd just seen one sitting on my pile of sewn HSTs and I was a bit annoyed:-)
I need some advice. I have been playing around with the layout of the the ST quilt again - as I mentioned the fabric came in different amounts, but it has, fortuitously or not, arranged itself into two patterns.
The first is this:
I am thinking that I would take the green all the way round, and follow it with another border of the pink (effectively turning it into a star with a warm/cold or value quilt edging.
The second option is this, mega swoony thing:
I just don't know/can't decide which to do. Bearing in mind that neither might be your cup of tea and that both look weird against my cheap rug, if you think I should go one way or the other, please let me know - I'd value the opinion of someone with a good eye. Either way I plan to frame it with a plain surround, and a patterned binding which picks up the colours - possibly with some sort of small motif in the corners. If I was making it for me I might try white, but I have probably discounted that as being less practical for a small child.
