I made a few last minute fabric changes with this quilt.
First, I had to banish the paisley print. This post I wrote a while back will explain why.
Second, I planned to use this pretty print for the border.
I thought it would frame the quilt nicely. But when I got to the border part, I found it too overpowering.
The cream just looked waaay better.
Ya know, this is one of the things I love about quilting. You start off thinking you're in charge, but somewhere along the way the quilt takes over and starts telling YOU what it wants to look like. Then you have a choice: either obey the quilt and do what IT wants you to do, OR be stubborn, ignore it and then have it hate you for the rest of it's life (and you it).
I have chosen wisely ...
