Unfortunately I don’t have any useable progress pictures as I did not use a design wall, so I have made a few rough sketches for illustrations. They are not to scale in any way.
With the first layout, the strings in the top and bottom borders would go in the other direction than the rest of the quilt, which I did not want, so I changed it to this second layout. As the light strips were about 1 ½” narrower than the coloured, I would need 4 narrower strips in both bottom and top border to fit the measurement of the mid section.
When the mid section and side borders were stitched together
and I started cutting the rest of the strips I discovered that I did not have enough light fabric, it would only take me this far.
So I had to make more fabric and since I had to cut new strings anyway, and substitute all the fabrics I had used up, I cut the strings long enough to make 8” wide strips. I pieced the border strips together
and then the top.
Thanks for stopping by!
