I’ve decided who I’m going to gift this scrappy little star quilt to so I thought I would get it ready to go to the long arm quilter. I have been toying with the idea of putting a border on it because it turned out just a little small. So I tried out some fabrics I had and landed on this gorgeous blue, red, fuchsia and orange batik. It’s such a gorgeous fabric and ties in with a lot of the scrappy batiks in the quilt.
It also ties in nicely with the dark blue and sunflower batik I bought for the back. I chose a bright yellow to be used for the binding. I love a binding with a nice pop of color!
Here’s a look at what the binding will look like.
I messaged my quilter a week or so ago and she is actually keeping quite busy during the shutdown. She has saved a slot for my two quilts. All I need to do now to have this one ready is to get the back pieced.
For the quilting design, I’m thinking of something floral and curvy, maybe with a golden thread. I have time to ruminate on it as this is planned for a holiday gift.
