|Hst Medallion quilt|
This black border is the very last one for a single fat quarter to work. In fact I had to add about 4" length of a different fabric on one side. And now it's taking a bit more than a fat quarter to cut all the hst's for each border too. I'm looking at the stack of fabrics pulled from my stash and trying to determine the order in which I will use them, trying to make the larger pieces of fabric fall at the last. From here on out, there will definitely be more and more fabric combinations used for each border just to come up with enough. And that's okay. It will just end up with a scrappier look, which of course I love and still adheres to the antique quilt inspiration.
The colors are off with this picture, but it's been hard to find the proper time of day to take a good picture. At least you clearly see the design and how it's extending out through the borders!
