Aloha and good morning.
I put my little quilt top together. Isn't it fun?! It now measures 36 x 48 and I'm contemplating adding a black border. I think it the black will make the colors pop, and the added size will make it a little more appropriate for a family of growing boys.
I've ordered more of the white on black fabric for the border. I'm thinking it should be the same size as the strips (4.5" finished) but I might go just a little bit smaller.
The back will be the focus fabric with a pieced stripe in it. I have two nine-patch blocks left over and a bunch of the brights. I'm planning on the strip being the same width as those on the front and off center vertically on the back.
The binding is solid black. The quilting....what do you think about lime green banana leaves, or maybe aqua frothy waves. I haven't really decided on this one yet.
