re. Deciding on Border for this #2 Mystery Quilt - "Over/Under"
OK, I think I already decided NOT to put this border on, but see what you think.
The outer binding would be in the blues in the quilt.
Warning - this is a VERY easy quilt on purpose (doing it for beginners who visit my Q site). I decided to do a strip pieced 9-patch but break the 9-patch into section that have some Over-Under movement, thus the name of the quilt.
Here is 2/3 of the whole quilt. The actual size is about 84" x 84"
I've put a 1.5 in. print border around the edge and am considering the pieced border you can see at the far right side edge.
Here's a closer view.
So do I END it here with the thin print border and add a thin blue binding?
OR - do I add this pieced border, which, with has wedge shapes which I had planned to echo in the quilting using diagonally V-quilting lines. Here's two close ups of the pieced border along side the right edge of the quilt (not sewn).
Here's a last detail of the fabrics up closer:
Thanks for an opinion!
