Slow Sunday stitching
I’m continuing to work on La Passacaglia. I have one small section left to sew in the main body of the quilt, along those light purple stars. After that, I need to add stars to two more rosettes and put them in on the right hand side. Then it will be just adding on the last of the white framing pieces. I am beginning to question my plans of appliquéing the white framing pieces to a white border. I’ve seen one done with the white sewn down onto a coloured border, and I really liked it. And looking at the picture of the entire piece laying on the dark coloured floor, I think I like the way the white against the dark makes the centre of this quilt shine out more. Almost like when framing a picture, there’s often a narrow white piece of matting before the larger coloured matt around the picture. I’m almost thinking that a wide white border will be too bright, and that’s all I’ll see. Any opinions..... yes or no to colour or white? Of course then the real question will be, what colour? Oh well, I have time before I get to that point. I’m linking up to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching, and then it’s back to actually stitching.
