pineapple blossoms are a top...


The blocks I won are in a top and it will be going to the quilter real soon.
So there is time to think about.....

  1. p.s.....Three blocks are sewn together for a dresser scarf. Not sure on how to finish it, and I haven't taken a picture yet.

  2. Love the sashing! It looks so modern and fresh. But then I loved the way Bonnie that won did hers too. I'd go with an orange border. I need to dig out mine soon. I won that month too!

  3. I. Suggest your darkest blue, so the focus stays on the middle.

  4. Love the way you did the sashing. I might have to do something similar when I dig out my stack. I would do the orange for a binding to tie it all together.

  5. Love your blue and orange sashing. Maybe dark gray for binding to tie in with the grays in the blocks.

  6. Uh - uh....Use the same blue as the sashing for the continuity there and to keep the focus on the middle of the quilt. A different color binding, seems to me would be distracting. rho's 2 cents!

  7. I vote for an orange binding....or maybe the blue...but then again a scrappy binding might work on this too...
    I think you are going to have to try them to see which works best....LOL!!!

  8. Your orange and blue sashings really pull it all together. I think that I'd go with blue binding. Kathie L in Allentown

  9. Like, Tina, I initially thought about using a gray ... but the more I thought about it, like Michelle, I could see blue or scrappy or ... yep, I think when you audition some possible fabrics, you'll "see" the answer. Thanks for sharing your quilt.

  11. this is wonderful ;-)
    my first thought was grey, then I thought blue ... but I wonder what it would look like with white binding .... would it make the blue borders pop more, or make the diagonal crosses pop more ??? this is the part I hate ... auditioning bindings - you will know it when you see it ;-)

  12. I really didn't like that block when I first saw it, but I love that quilt top. I think the binding really brings it together and the cornerstones bring out the white in the block. Great work!

  13. Your setting really makes these blocks look great. I had a hard time seeing these blocks in a quilt before. I'd go with orange for the binding.
