Oh yes you know it! I got the borders on that star looking old old old mystery quilt. I guess it needs a name. I will look in my "List of Most Creative Names" and pick one out for it.
As you can tell, it is still very windy and overcast. I went out yesterday at 3 pm and emptied 3 inches of rain from the rain gauge. This morning it was overflowing at 6 inches! and just now I emptied another 1 1/2 inches. So that is OVER 10 inches of rain. In 24 hours. WOW!
I tried to get a better view of the two new borders: a nice green
inner border and a brown outside border. I am thinking this is a
masculine looking quilt. Seems I can't make many of those!
I decided I might have a better chance of getting a non-windy shot from the other side of the fence. LOL. That was even worse!
Although it did occur to me that if you wanted to modern this quilt up a bit, doing irregular strip sets of a taupe and beige in the off blocks would be a great way of doing it. You could do solids rather than scrappy traditionals, or even a one color solution. QuiltCon here I come! I am a designer now!
Here is that sacrifice brownie pan converted to rust. I am going to shibori pleat a piece of silk and lay it first on one side, then the other in the pan. It should, operative word here is should, create a rusted shibori.
Is that not cool, or what?
