Playing with the plaids!

Good afternoon everyone!  I have been playing with the plaid blocks...trying to figure out a border!!  I am liking the pink, it is girlie, like the hearts...just trying to figure out if I like the flying geese.  One thing is for sure, I love making them, and I get bonus half square triangles!  whoohoo!!!


Have a great day!!

My first reaction when I saw the geese as a border was that it made a very classic looking quilt. If you love making them, why not? : )

Yummy - loved these churn dash blocks before - now the pink plaid really gives them an unexpected twist - and the geese makes the whole quilt grow up - super job

I like both the pink and the flying geese so I think you are headed in the right direction.

This makes me happy!!!! Pink is second only to Cheddar in my book except when using plaids then Cheddar isn't even on the list. lol. :)

Looks great, flying geese fit in with everything! ....bonus half square triangles, hmm does that mean there will be a second pieced border?!

I like the pink and the flying geese in the border. And the bonus HST's are perfect seeds for another quilt!

This is turning into a spectacular quilt. I'm not very good at making flying geese, but if you find them easy, then why not make the border from them. I love the pink inner border.

What a wonderful quilt!! When I piece borders (not that often) I like to mimic some element in the block.
I'm sure whatever you chose will be wonderful!

I love all of the quilts you do! You should seriously consider doing a book! You are extremely talented when it comes to making up patterns of your own :)
