LIBERATED LOGS TOP TOGETHER SANS BORDERS


Yesterday I finished sewing the top together, from my Block Lotto winnings. Now for the borders. Hmm....... First I was thinking purple, since the theme for this quilt is purple/green/blue with black and white thrown in. I used black in the sashing, and the cornerstones are a perky lime and blue print on white. Hence all but purple are used in setting the blocks. But now I'm thinking maybe use all three colors in progressively wider borders, and bind it in black. What do you think? Opinions are most welcome. Since shopping is involved here, it will be a few days at least until I finish it to flimsy stage.

This whole modern looking quilt is sooooo out of my traditional box! Block Lotto stretches you!

How about a thin black & white print inner border, then a wide purple one?

I really like your setting and how the quilt is coming out.

It looks great and with the lavender in the border will go in your guest room. Hint, Hint, lol.
