A place to chronicle my quilts and other aspects of everyday life here in central NC.

I really like the sashing and inner border fabric that I picked out for the Spiderweb II Saturday (Stonehenge- Norcott). I also bought a beautiful, silver gilded, multicolored dragonfly fabric with a dark blue background that I was planning to use for the outer border. However, once I had sewn on the sashing it just looked out of place even though the colors were okay. It made the quilt look overdressed- kinda like wearing a prom dress to a baseball game!
I did find 2 nice batiks at home that I can use - it is a scrap quilt after all - we'll see.
