I had taken a nap today, a much to long one that left me up all night..I had finish the top and was going to send photos in to the gallery after my nap. I have been up all night so decided to do the borders..I have tried 4 different colors for the first border..and what a difference it makes on a quilt..the lime green brought out the purples and green, the turquoise brought out the blues and oranges..the purple did nothing for it really, as it a light purple..I knew when I pinned it on the board it was gong to be red, I did not want to use red..but it was the best choice for the fabrics used in my summer..Now I am not sure what color fabric I will use for the binding but that is after machine quilting..it will probably be awhile yet..I have a pile right now of 5 quilts counting this one..lol
This is my sizzling summer...it is what summer is to me..
