The center of the Pinwheel Garden quilt is sewn...auditioning borders now. Meh for the burgundy print.
The green dot is okay but I don't have enough of it. A big no to the yellowish print. I have no other light prints in the stash--no light blue, pink, green, or purple.
This creamy white looks better than I expected.
I believe there are enough lights in the pinwheels to make this the right choice. With the addition of more green from the vines and leaves to be appliqued, I think it will look great. There is only a yard of it so I'll have to do MATH to see if there is enough. If not, I'll find another at the fabric store that will work.
While I had the camera out, I took pics of the lovely gifts our guests brought: a picture postcard tour of their city, Nizhny Novgorod, a thimble and t-shirt with the city's name, and an adorable set of matryoshka.
The tallest one is only about four inches, and the little bean of a baby about 3/4". I love these!
Tonight I hope to complete all the crosshatching on the Caramel Blues quilt. This needs to be completed by Friday if I want to enter it into the County Fair and there is still stippling, borders, and binding to be done.
