The fabric on your border reminds me of scratch painting. Did you ever do that as a kid? You'd color sections of paper , the brighter the better and then paint a layer of matt black paint over the entire thing. You had to wait for it to dry completely then you got to make a picture by scratching the black paint off with popsicle sticks or depending on what grade you were in 'pointy' things. That's a pretty fabric. It was fun and so creative. I hear you on the fabric shopping. I'm trying to do the same thing with the exception of the FQ's I got last month. I had a store credit here in town and picked up a bunch of pretty pieces . Do you have some cuts that are too pretty to use? I do. And then there are the ones were I don't want to hack it up for just anything. It's the difference between breaking a $50 or a measly $20.
All the fabrics in this quilt are from my stash, I have decided no more buying until some of this stash is used.You must admit I LOVE FABRIC. The curved blocks around the border is my own design, I didn't want it to be the same as the central blocks. This is another draft paper idea.
OMG! So many tiny pieces! It's all so intricate. Great colors too by the way. You'll notice most of my quilts fall in the traditional realm. I haven't moved from the oldies much.
