After I got this week’s A4AQA Block done, I decided to add the borders to this Tam’s Patch Swap quilt top. I had decided on the turquoise stripe awhile ago – but I wasn’t sure what I wanted to add to the outside of that. A fun safety pin black/white print is what I finally picked.
Up close you can see the safety pins … but when you look from a distance it takes on a TOTALLY DIFFERENT appearance – a very graphic stripe! Here’s a close-up of the fussy cut safety pins in the border. It also gives you a better view of the vibrant turquoise stripe!
I’ll probably go with a black tone-on-tone print for the binding. But I haven’t made up my mind 100% yet.
