First I have to say it again that this is a magnificent community of quilt bloggers. Thanks for weighing in on my border issue. I appreciated your thoughtful comments. You made me think and that's what I was looking for. You're the BEST!
So, this is what it's going to be. I was leaning towards white, scrappy, white and after I sewed on the first scrappy side I knew that wasn't it. Rip, rip! The scrappiness distracted from the simplicity of the blocks, it didn't work. I took Nicolette's advice that reds go with reds. The 2nd border isn't the same red (but not the orangy one I originally reserved for the border), but it's close. I used all I had, but that still didn't make it a twin size so I added the outside white. I would have preferred all red, but at least I didn't have to buy more fabric. That part should hang down over the mattress anyway. All the work I put into the scrappy border will turn into the binding. I think it's small enough to add interest without distracting from the quilt. So, there it is. Basting, quilting and binding....onward! Oh, forgot, I also have to piece something together for the back. Will I ever finish this quilt?
