Yesterday was a day of no sewing - there was some cleaning, some grocery shopping and even a bit of
Since I can't do any more on the Checkerboard quilt until I have it pin-basted, a job I have to do at school because I have no floor space that isn't hardwood here at home, I decided to work on A Tisket a Tasket this afternoon.
Screeeeeech... that's me coming to a halt after sewing on some sashing strips.
I just can't make up my mind what to use for the "posts". Have a look.
Here are the rows of blocks with the Red Checks sashing in between:
I set up a few scenarios to help me decide.
When I ordered my fabric, I intended to use the Red Paisley for the outer border and the posts. Now I'm not so sure... Although I like it, I'm worried that there isn't enough contrast between the sashing and the posts.
I could use this pink polka dot fabric. I have included a little bit of it in each of the blocks.
Or... there is the Love Notes Red Scroll. I like the look of this the best; the only problem is, if I use this I will have to buy another fabric for the inside border (which would mean another decision) because 1) I didn't buy enough to do both, and 2) the posts and the inside border are next to each other in places.
What to do? What to do?
If I didn't have to stop and make (or remake) decisions, I would have this done already... okay, maybe not, but there would be a better chance of it getting done soon.
