Building a Quilt

Well, it's started - the  cutting is done and the blocks are coming together.  I've put the soft grey in the first block, as I build the quilt I'll audition other fabrics.
I'm pretty sure I know what it needs just by looking at the pictures.  Any thoughts??
  I'm thinking of using a dark grey inner border and the light grey floral for the outer border.
Back to sewing - it's getting fun now!!

It's looking great! The color combo is wonderful. I immediately thought of lipsticks - in all shades of red and pink - when I first saw it. Looks like you're having a good time with the layout.

The gray borders will be just what this quilt needs. With such a scrappy look, the colors are blending together nicely, but the borders will soften everything to your eyes. It is a fantastic quilt. I love your scrappy look up on the design wall.
Have fun at the retreat!
