I didn’t get much sewing done this week. However I partially reached my goal of getting the borders on my WBL 2012 group!

As Always I am linking up with WIP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced and @The Needle and Thread Network.  Make sure you hop on over there and see what everyone else is working on too.

My April to do list
Complete Christmas table runner: Stop thinking and start doing something!!
We bee learning 2012 group 2-Get the borders on!!!
 I had trouble with this one. I had brought a lovely bright orange to go on for the border. However when I when to put it on I thought..YUCK!! I tried every piece of fabric I owned and nothing really seemed so say yes. I finally decided on navy.

Now I am stuck do I still put the orange on...or maybe the green...HELP

  1. Fantastic quilt Haley....the border depends on how much pop you want. I prefer the green, but the orange jumps out...

  2. I prefer the green too... Lots of luck deciding!

  3. Yes, it does depend on the look you want, and what you will be using for binding. Audition them all and take photos to see which you like. The quilt is wonderful!

  4. I honestly don't know...go with what makes you happiest.

  5. Although I like orange, I wouldn't add it to this border either. I do like the green though!

  6. I think the orange makes it pop. Good luck making a decision.

  7. I love your new blog design, it is so bright and cheerful! The orange really pops, so it depends on if you want a muted border or a bright border.

  8. A very hard decision but I think the green.

  9. Looks amazing all together! :) lookie -- there's my square :)
    I like the orange more than the green ... more color to it?

    Bind in green?

  10. Sorry, I have no idea which you should use. But I look forward to seeing what you decide
