I always hate getting to the part where I have to add borders in to a quilt. I can never decide whether it needs a border or not. Or even how much border it should have.
I was going to leave it like that. Nice and simple. Focus on the blocks and the layout and the piecing and not complicate it with borders.
But I have a bunch of HSTs, some of which are roughly hand-sewn and which need using, and which are the right colour and suitably scrappy...
Which then brings up the question of the type of border it should have.
These things are never easy to decide!
Or Flying Geese?
Ultimately, I picked the one with the least sewing - the Flying Geese. Because the least effort for the best effect is always a good way to go for me!
Plus, I like the 'blank space' effect that the flying geese blocks produce.
Isn't it preeeeetty? So so preeeeeetty!
It was still a lot of sewing, mind! Two episodes of Castle - the one with the handcuffs and the 2nd half of the one with the national security threat - and three episodes of Sherlock - the one introducing Moriarty, the one with Irene Adler (*OMG LOVE*), and the Hounds of Baskerville.
My day is done. (And nearly gone the sun!)
And that's #5 for the year! And it's not even April!
I even have HSTs left over for the Festival of Half Square Triangles being put on by Megan over at Canoe Ridge Creations!!
