Bordering on a finish

I'm working hard now: both on the piecing of these circles and on my quilting.  Today I pieced another run of squares for the top, bottom and left hand side, so just the right side to go.  I'm pretty sure that will be it. 

Having said which, I laid it out with a little gap between the existing section and the new bits, so that you could see what I was adding and I kind of like that little gap.  Now I'm wondering about finding a fabric to add in there to retain in. This may be too much fiddling about for me - depends entirely when I do it - or may not look that great when I come back to it, but I am pondering.


Need to make that last strip first though.

  1. I think it would look nice with a thin strip to separate those last borders you've done. So close to a finish now!

  2. So close, yes, but those shirt fabrics lighten it up so that I'm thinking maybe...

    I do like the new bits and tiny bits of yellowy-orange, which I had not noticed before. I wonder why? It's such a nice piece and, though there's lots going on, the monochromatic color scheme is very calming.

  3. I like the look. From the picture I thought you had already added the inner border before I read the blog. It may be fiddley, but worth it.

  4. A gap there looks dynamic and would be perfect Kaja! You definitely can take on fiddly and win.

  5. It will look so good no matter what you decide. I like the idea of adding some thin strips, it adds an element of surprise that you don't expect. :)

  6. Support for thin inner borders...but it looks quite good without, too. Trust yourself!

  9. I like the little gap, too. Isn't it fun how that came about? It's such a treat to see quilts progress. Thanks for sharing so many steps.

  10. Looks great and I like that gap too! A thin solid colour inner border, perhaps?!

  11. I like the gap too. Maybe audition a red or orange there?

  12. I love the borders! They look great without the circles. I reckon whether you choose to add a gap or not, the borders will stand out for that reason alone. Looking good :)
