At last the mystery quilt I have been working on courtesy of Bonnie is complete.
I decided in the end not to put borders on it – mainly cause I want it to fit onto the woolen blanket pictured in the photo – but also because I’m not sure it really needs borders. Milly has given it the “lie down” of approval all ready…lol.
Instead I am going to use wide binding – at least an inch or more in width – to finish it off. I was really pleased with how it turned out – considering I was winging it regarding colours, patterns etc the whole thing seems to come together quite nicely – well at least I think so. It did need the green though if nothing else to tone down that hot pink.
A huge thank you to Bonnie for making this such a fun and easy project. All the clues I might add are now on Bonnie’s site should you wish to play too. I would never have tackled something like this if I had read the directions in a book. Thanks to Bonnie’s step by step cutting, piecing and ironing techniques – all determined by the clues we received – I now have a beautiful quilt – which I might add uses different patterns (rail fence, hourglass, nine patch) something which I have not tried before and especially on this scale. I’m generally a one block woman – well no more….vbg.
