This quilt you have seen before except.........it is different. I made this quilt with a border of green and brown polka dots. Sometimes you do stupid things and you know there stupid but you do them anyway. Well, I made this border, cut the strips, the dots were not straight. They were straight on part of the strip but not straight on the rest of the strip. I knew I would not like it, but I didn't want to mess around with it and I did like the polka dots, so I put the border on the quilt, added the outside border, which you see plus the polka dot corner stones. When I looked at the quilt hanging, I did not like it. I put it in the amoire. It stayed there for months.
I finally decided that I really like this quilt and I needed to do something with it. I took off the borders (the green and the brown polka dots) and the corner stones. I found enough fabric of green with brown leaves and etc and decided I liked it. So a new border was born. Then I decided I had a red border on it already before the green and I thought a flange border in red would look really good. So thus, a flange border was added. Then I thought about the corner stones. What can I do for corner stones? I decided to make four more pineapple blocks. So now we have pineapples in the corners, I put the brown print border back on and I have a top finished and I like it.
I must apologize for the terrible photography. I really need a new camera, and I guess I am going to have to break down and buy one. When I do get one, I will post it again. The colors are great and picture does not do it justice.
I must run, I am off to sew with friends. I will add to this tonight or tomorrow, so come back and see what is going on at my house.
