Civil War-Clara Barton quilt!!
I was just pondering about what kind of border I should use for the Red Cross quilt. I have a metric ton of these red triangles already made, and was wondering if I could use them....this way?
Or this way?
Plain red border??? (scrap pulled from the scrap basket for demonstration...)
Mustard? (ooooo yuck!!)
Ticking?? (wish it were darker...hmmm)
Or Blue? or another idea...maybe dark grey??
Please oh please, if you have a moment...what would you do??? I am sure you quilters have a wonderful idea...please share???
And on a fun note!! I recently received some 1 and 1/8 tiny fabric squares. (Thank you so much, Linda O!) I am making a series of mug rugs with them, and this is my first one. Hand quilting these...fun!!
