Building a border is much more difficult than choosing a piece of fabric to match. You would think using random lengths of 2 1/2" strips that it would be pretty easy to create a border. I struggled just a bit. I raided my red stash to find pieces that are remotely close to this line of Grace by 3 Sisters. Many of the red pieces from that line didn't work as they had too much floral pattern and color to read as red. I thougt about doing the border red and green, but there was so much green I thought it needed the red to balance it out.
I finally got the center part pieced and down off the design wall. I will finish the border soon as I need to send it to a friend to show as a sample.
This is going to be so pretty!!
Until next time,
