I started working on the spiky border and decided I need more variety of fabrics.
I definitely like the lighter and brighter fabric in there. I think some of spikes will have to be rose color as well as red/purple. I already had enough purple cut so I'll have some spikes left over to use in another project.
Meanwhile on the other medallion I am auditioning the plain border and whether a checkerboard would be a good border to follow it. I think a border with triangles would be too busy. I might make the checkerboard out of just 2 fabrics instead of scrappy. Lots of decisions here.
