Blocks in Borders 11, 12, 13, 14

Oh, so sweet!

This project file is pretty much all so sweet … a combination of dainty block designs and pretty colours.

I am slowly retiring project files, and this is one making it’s farewell appearance today.

I am well on the way to sorting blocks designs, which has included a lot of redrawing blocks, and will start using the new blocks, and associated quilting motifs, in new projects in the hopefully not too distant future. Will have to keep this selection of fabrics in mind for one of the new projects.

By the way, I use fabrics in the EQ fabric library to design all the time, and use those fabric choices to pick new fabrics to make real quilts. If a fabric works in a virtual quilt, I look for a similar fabric currently on the shelves in the shops now for a real quilt.

I love the last one … my pick for the day, probably because there is room for some lovely background quilting.

About Virtual Quilter

I am a quilter who designs many more quilts than I will ever make, and I am sharing one quilt design every day in Virtual Quilter. I also share my completed projects in Stuff-Ups, and Christmas decorations in Christmas Everyday of the Year.

    I like the last one the best, Judy. In my not so humble opinion, I think the borders in the 2nd and 3rd designs overwhelm the beautiful applique center block. 🙂

    • Laura,

      Thank you.

      My only excuse is that I was playing with the border designs to see if they worked and fitted together. By the last design I had tried most of the border options, and started looking for the best ways to use them to show off the centre design, and the other borders.

      Once again, the lesson is that we can keep playing with design as long as we like and not damage any fabric, but we will keep learning about what works and doesn’t work in designs.
