On to the Next Border(s)

You know me, always jumping around from project to project. It keeps me from being bored (as if that's ever a problem with quilting) and the color change-up from quilt to quilt is a wonderful thing. Some calming, others not so much!
Geese Tracks & Improv. quilt
Most of the baskets are appliqued now for my Geese Tracks & Improv. quilt. Just a few more and I can start sewing the borders together. They are SO blueish! I may have to add a little more color in to help that border out, but then there is that single red basket to think about. Mustn't take away from it's moment in the spotlight....
Flowers and Flying Geese Medallion
I finally sewed my Dresden wedges together for the Flowers and Flying Geese quilt too. Can you believe that I once didn't even like pink? (Having little girls probably took care of that problem!) I found a great fabric in my stash to fussy cut for the half circle centers and I am loving how it makes the Dresdens 'pop'. It's a bit brassy and bold for the rest of the quilt, but my heart is saying go for it. The border lengths are cut out, my Dresdens are ready to applique and I am getting excited about this border. Can you tell? I know if I would have plowed through the entire quilt last July when I first started this quilt, I would never even have come up with this border. It wouldn't have happened because Dresdens were just not on my horizon then!  Okay, lots to do today. Basketball games tonight and I'm still not through with everything that needs done for the day.  Never enough time to quilt like we want to.*wink

  3. I so agree with you that hopping around different projects can be about wanting to play with certain colours on certain days. I don't think I've seen those dresdans before, I love the centers!! The cool blue of your vases is beautiful against the brown backgrounds.

  4. Diversions from working with the same colors keeps the creativity alive! And yes... there is never enough time to quilt!

    And those half Dresden’s are going to look absolutely beautiful...I really love those...I think I might pin those to Pinterest so I don’t forget that I’m going to steal that idea one day and do that on a border too!

  8. Sometimes a time span from the beginning, the middle and end can redirect a quilt in a positive direction.

  11. Wow Audrey! You are amazing! Love the turquoise and brown - I made a quilt a few years ago in that combination, after seeing someone wear that combo, and I'm very happy with it. Your Dresdens are gorgeous - love that centre!
