Lime, Black, Grey and White

Quilting in 

Lime, Black, Grey & White

My latest project is for my son and daughter-in-law.
Josh and Michele

They wanted lime green, black, med grey and white.
Well this is a very lime top!
After making about 16 blocks I decided I did not like it
So something needed to happen.

 The block design is one I got from Quilters Cashe
she has tons of blocks there and all for free.  Thank you Marcia.

The pattern is called Fading Star

 

I know the colors are hard to see, 
sadly my camera is not picking them up to well.

The black has lime green dots.  What looks like yellow
is a bright, bright lime and white.  Then two different limes,
one with teal seed shape, shapes.  
 I changed it around a little because I did not like how the
fabrics I had chosen worked out.


As I mentioned I did not like the idea of a whole king
size quilt done with just those blocks soooooo
I had to figure something out.
I am a member of Craftsy.com 
and there is a class I am taking called Finishing School
by Winnie Fleming.
She teaches about making pieced borders.
Now I have done this before on my Ruffled Roses quilt 
but it never crossed my mind.
I began making borders to add to the center.
 First came a black border, next a lime border
both plain borders.
Next a 4 patch border.
Starting with a 4 patch with 1 1/2 finished squares


 Add half square triangles one in lime and one in grey
 Stack them like so and sew together to create
 this border, which will be added to the last lime border
 for this.
 Next make half square triangle squares
 which will be added thus
to create this.
What next?  I don't know yet.  
First I need to finish the other 3 sides, 
so I am off to sew.

That's terrific bordering! I'm looking forward to seeing how the corners come together. This makes the center so much more interesting, too.
