This quilt top looks so much better sewn together.
I auditioned this fabric for a border. It is a little more red/purple than it looks here. My initial feeling was that it was too dark.
The color is a little truer in this photo. It really makes the darkest colors in the blocks stand out and then the lighter area glows. I will have to look at it for a couple days before I make a final decision. I couldn't find any red fabric that looked good with it. I can still just finish it without a border too.
