The 1 Week Quilt – Part 2 Piecing

With the design complete and fabric selected from my stash it was time to start the piecing. The design called for an 8″ cream block with 2″ burgundy and 2″ green border. Like this:

But when I sewed it I was worried that it didn’t leave enough room for the quilting design and that it would draw too much attention away from the flower blocks. I decided to make a test block using 1″ burgundy and 1″ green border. I placed them both on the panel. Yep, I liked the 1″ border better. The 2″ border block can go in my orphan block pile for some other future use.
