A block without borders
A good rummage through a couple bins of scraps resulted in several possibilities, ranging from "hmm" to "ridiculous" but never reaching "sublime." A few of those possibles:
Yikes! What WAS she thinking?!
I sure wasn't feeling the love for any of these, and had decided to just slap a backing on the original block, get it quilted and done. There was this sweet older print in one bin, and I figured it would make a lovely back and I could always flip it to the reverse side when I tired of looking at the pink.
The little quilt and the fabric had other ideas however, and here's where we ended up after they decided to dance together.
I love the way the mellow golden yellow softens the glaring pink/white combination of the hst's a bit, and certainly makes the top more lovable at least in my eyes. And that's where this project stands right now. The top is 38x38 inches, a good table-topper size. It will go into the closet for a bit while I try to finish some other huge lingering projects before I decide how to quilt it.
