Tam’s Patch 2013 Block Swap – Borders Added

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.
