Midnight at the Oasis .... cont.
This one is definitely taking me outside of my comfort zone.
I was so pleased with how my Marcelle Quilt turned out
that I am scared that I am going to screw this one up!
This is where I am up to at the moment. Almost half way through the needle turn on this border.
I am loving the 'pop' of purple and hope I can work some more in as I go.
My border fabric is fraying really bad so I thought that I should add the next border to stop this. I knew I wanted a dark border but kept doubting myself. (This border will have bright applique on it). So I asked my Instagram friends (I'm 'lilabellelane' if you want to find me) for some help. Here is the pattern for your reference. Check out all the Churn Dash blocks. They finish at 3" - pure madness!!
Most opinions on Instagram were for the dark, which was my first choice. A few are also saying light, which makes me doubt myself again. So (for the time being) I have run with the dark aka black. I think I like how it looks but I wont really know until I start putting the applique on. Must finish that inner border first though :)
I have no idea how this quilt is going to turn out, it is going to be a real learning curve for me.
Enjoy your Sunday
