On my design wall this week is my scrappy rainbow of 12" LeMoyne Star blocks. These were one of my projects for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2014. The blocks have been sewn together since early January, but I was undecided about the border. I tried making a pieced border for the quilt, but didn't like the way it looked. All my other attempts seemed too dark, until I got a new (to me) white on black fabric. I decided to use it along with a narrow border of a colorful stripe.
My indecision right now is whether the colorful stripe should be narrower. It's hard to see in the photo, but I have pinned the right side border to cover up part of that stripe and see if that improves things. Maybe some close-ups would help show what I mean.
In the top left corner, the colorful borders finish at 1". On the right side of the final photo, that border is about 1/2". I will continue to ponder changing this and appreciate any opinions or suggestions.
