|Improv. Postage Stamp Basket quilt top|
|So hard to get a decent picture of the whole thing....|
|Really love the busier sashing prints mixed in....|
Not sure if you can tell from my over-exposed pics, but all the darker roses went into the center of the quilt and the lighter colored ones to the middle-outside edges, then a lighter tone on tone fabric to the very outside edges of the quilt. It seemed to come together just fine though, and really, no reason to panic about some of the roses perhaps not being 'perfectly' centered. We quilters are so funny sometimes, the things that can push our buttons.
Still haven't managed to figure out quite what to do with all those pineapple blocks, but ideas are absolutely simmering somewhere on the back burner. In the meantime, I've just about convinced myself that this quilt won't be needing a border after all--you know that's the default position around here. So that's that. It's all trimmed up now and resting with the oodles of other quilt tops waiting for sandwiching and quilting. Two down, two to go on these blue/green quilt spin-offs. Maybe I should start calling it the 'Don't Tell Me What To Do' series?
