Soliciting Advice!...


This block is due to arrive late this week from Laila. I must add a border to it so that it is taken from a 13" block to a 20" block. Here's a closeup of the block center. I am jumping the gun here with trying to brainstorm out a good design. Any Ideas??? A piece of the pink like the corner squares and scraps of the blue floral are coming with the block. Additionally, I can select my own fabrics too. It is for the Spring Fling Round Robin.

Hmm, I was looking at that one on the SFRR blog and wondering who would get it. I think it's quite a busy block, so it needs something calming, but as you are working on the outside border, it can't be too plain (wasn't that helpful?). I'll ponder it a bit and perhaps come back and comment again if anything occurs to me.

It seems like ages ago I had my previous block to work on for this swap - can't wait to get the next one - as I see them go up on the rr blog I keep wondering if that will be the one!

This should be interesting to put on that final third border. For some reason the first thing I thought is that it should be put on point with the dark green and wine on the bottom. It creates a lot of movement for the pinwheel. Beyond that I haven't a clue as to what to do. You'll have to show us your sketches when you get ready. :-)
