Where did September go? This year is flying by........ Last night I sewed 6 more rows. They aren't pressed yet so I didn't sew them onto the first 10 rows yet.
A friend came over to play yesterday morning so I pulled 2 red stripe fabrics to audition for the border before the last 2 rows of 16 patches. You can see I stole some 16 patches from the center to simulate the borders. The stripe on the right tends to be to the burgundy shade in the dark areas with red as the lightest. The stripe on the left has some gold in it in addition to reds. Click on the photo for a better look.
Last night when I was down there sewing I kept looking at it and wondered what the 2 stripes would look like together. That might be too wide of a separator before that last row of 16 patches. I need to try it reversed too, with the dark stripe first and the narrow stripe second. If only one gets used for the separator border the other could be used for binding......just thinking out loud here.
