Murphy’s Law of Fabric

It’s not much, but it’s something.
The main section of the 30s top is together.
30s centerNext comes a narrow border of the background fabric, which is already cut. You can see the mock-up in the upper right hand corner.
After that comes a wider border. I’ve auditioned at least 15 fabrics. Nothing looked right. All that fabric and not a 30s reproduction print in sight. I hate it when that happens.
We have more family fun this weekend, and I won’t be able to go to the quilt shop until sometime next week. Good thing I have plenty of other projects to work on.

  1. Could you create a pieced border with the leftovers (should there be any) from the blocks, maybe mixed with solids? Or, if there aren’t leftovers, maybe just solids?

    I agree a scrappy border would look great, or if you have enough of the background fabric use that as a border and it would really make the centre pop out

    A scrappy border would be fun, but I am sure that you will come up with a good solution. Enjoy the family…it is time well spent! 🙂

    I definitely need to bookmark your sashing and border method, so cute!
