Moving along on the borders of this quilt.
I was not sure what to do next to add the diamond border.
I did not like it right against the light grey
After considering things, I decided to add
a lime 1" border and a black 1" border.
I chose to sew them together before adding them.
Next the diamonds will be added
and another 1" black border will go on the outside.
Hummm.......this presented a problem
I did not discover until I began sewingthe two borders on.
Because I first sewed the borders together, they would
overlap at the corners in a way that would not work.
After some consideration, I decided to add a corner block.
Now you can see the diamonds and how they
will line up, I believe a lime square will
go in the corner where they meet up.
That is for another day, more diamonds to sew together.
The top will measure 88 inches once the diamonds are on.
I hope to make it 96 inches square so that once it is washed
and shrinks up a little it will be close to the 90 inches wanted.
So what will the final border be? Perhaps a piano key? I am running out of
fabrics so will have to consider what to do next.
May the Lord above bless your richly.
