On The Wall - Again

It's again because I just wrote this post and lost it all.  So here I go again.
Do any of you remember the post from April that I wrote about the Kings River Guild's theme quilt.  I was using fabrics that weren't ones I normally use and I was struggling.  I felt the background was too busy and the fabrics were very large prints which didn't seem to work.

Well, I went in a new direction.  I went to my stash and found a black background with a subtle  print.  I like movement in my fabrics which tend to make my quilts busy but you can never say they are boring!  The bright fabrics followed.  I know I am going in the right direction because I have done all this in a month plus everything else I have done.  I am thinking about a piano key border.  What do you think?
I just finished quilting a baby quilt for a friend of mine.  She likes to piece and I like to quilt.  Works well and now I have some spending money for fabric.  Next week I am off to Cambria for a little time with my friends so I think I'll shop on the way up.  I so need this time to quilt and some time in some cooler weather.  Thanks Barbara for this time.  You Rock!


  1. I love the bright colors you're using! I bet a piano key border would be beautiful. It's one of my favorite borders.

    Thanks for stopping by and following! I appreciate the comment too!

  2. A truly colorful eye-catching start. Why not keep it going in the border?
