Right is sometimes wrong
I found this fabric and I thought it would be just perfect for the border. As I got ready to cut the borders for this quilt, I thought I would hang it on the design wall first.
This is what I saw when I hung it on the design wall. Yuck! I didn't like it. I am not sure if it is because it is too busy or if there is too much white. Either way, I knew right away it wasn't right so I didn't cut it.
Back to the drawing board I went. Funny thing is, the first thing I did was go to the computer and look for another one of those perfect pieces of fabric. I found a few that I thought would work, but I decided to go to my studio and look before I made the purchase. I found this piece, and I am much happier with how it looks. It is red with a subtle black pattern. It is all pressed and ready to cut this weekend.
It looks like the white will become part of the backing or used in another project. I love the fabric, but it just wasn't right for this project.
