One thing you can always be sure of in blog-world is opinions. (not to be confused with Bloggo-world where you attempt to sell Senate seats...but I digress)
My Double delight has again become a double dilemma (does that make it a Double squared dilemma, a double double dilemma or a double dilemma times two....duhhh, that is not the question....) The issue/dilemma is border choice.
I started this quilt with a bag of fabric I had put aside years ago for another project. In the bag was three yards of the purple leaf and three yards of the beige. In my mind these would be the inner and outer borders. Now, not so sure. So these are my options...
A. The original...purple leaves with beige
B. Purple leaves with pieced green inner border
C. Gold (grapes?) with pieced green inner border
D. What are you thinking girl...dig deeper into your stash
E. Support your President and get thee to a local quilt store
Oh, dear...on another topic. I made a couple of wonky stars to send off to Australia to make quilts for the victims of the fires. Now I have to go and find the blog that I read yesterday that had the address - yikes. You would think I would have made a link to it or something...noooo. There seems to be so many bad things happening. I had to turn off the news this morning for a bit and just play with the cats for a bit.
If I don't post tomorrow...Happy Valentine's Day everyone. Here are some postcards that I started about 4 years ago...I may have one finished tonight for my husband and maybe not. Do you think he would notice if I didn't get the edges finished?! The photo on the top of this posting is of some logcabin blocks I made last year. Didn't like them enough to make more (they measure 14x14...what was I thinking?!) but today I dug them out and am putting together a Valentine's day bag...a bit too cute but it is tough not to make a valentine's day thing-y not cute!
