WWYD?

Last year (I think it was last year) Judy Laquidara hosted a Quilt for an Hour project called "Bears in the Farmhouse" (click on the name and you can see her quilt). I used pieces of FQs that I had in my stash to create the toes. Unfortunately I ran out of pieces before getting the triangle border done and am now facing a dilemma....

Should I introduce new fabrics in the sawtooth border or just put the strip on and call it done?

What would you do?




UPDATE June 24, 2010

I found some some fabrics that will work AND I found the WOW that I used in the background. So now I have some HSTs to work on.

Thanks for the input!!!

Love the quilt! I like it with the sawtooth border so I would introduce new fabrics.

What a great quilt. It's easy to get bogged down on borders instead of finishing the quilt. I'd give it a nice border and call it done.

Well it depends just how much YOU love this quilt. I love the sawtooth border it really brings it all together. I'm all for a finish but if you love it enough to do it justice, bring in some new fabrics and make a great job of it and be happy, or just finish it with a strip and be done. It's your quilt afterall :)

Since there are so many fun colors in your blocks (and the focus fabric) I don't see where there would be a problem bringing in new designs of fabric in the same colors.

But, I love scrappy quilts.

If you are just ready to be done go with a one fabric border & call it a day.

I love your quilt.

i like the yellows, so I would be tempted to start pulling all my yellows out and using them with the cream... or whatever the other color is for the sawtooth border..

I think it would look fine either way so you should do whatever you are in the mood to do!

I love it, either way it will be such a pretty quilt...love the colors! No help huh, sorry! I will be watching for the finished quilt, please be sure to show us! Have a great day!

Either way would be good but I think you should bring in some more colors and put another border on...

Barb said...

It is so busy, I think just put a border on it and call it good.!

Well I would love to have the sawtooth border but in the fact you´re out of fabric I would put the strip on an call it done. It´s gorgeous the way it is!!!

I'd call it done - but I'm not a big fan of borders, anyway.

I have this pattern also - just love it. Yours is so pretty - you choose great fabrics.
