This is the charity quilt I've been working on. A couple of years ago a very nice lady gave bolts and bolts of fabric to our little sewing group to be used for charity quilts. She owns a quilt shop in one of the small towns southeast of Dallas. We split up a bunch of the fabrics and I came home with a couple of yards of the pink/hearts print.
I started cutting this while watching President Obama's Inauguration. I've worked on it a little in my spare time.
I can't decide what colors to use in the border. I have the bright pink fabric that is the same as the teal, yellow, and purple, and am thinking it needs to be the outer border. I was thinking yellow as the inner border, but is that too much yellow? With adding borders all around, it will be 60 inches square.
The nice thing is I have enough of the print left to make another top. I want to start on it this week but am not sure what pattern I want to do. I don't want to do more pinwheels. Any easy suggestions? I do have a lot more of the yellow and the purple but not much of the teal and I really don't want to go shopping since I'm trying to use up stash.
