Playing with green

The baton has been passed to Robina, who is now working on the first two Australian HeartStrings quilts.
She’s elected to add two borders to one of them. It was assembled from blocks made from the project guidelines, all with red centres. However, because we had such a large stash of blocks, I was able to pull out 48, all of which had one or more green strings in them.

My objective was to create greater cohesion in the assembled quilt than was created by the red centre strips alone. I’m not sure that I’ve succeeded, although I’m quite pleased with the look of the quilt anyhow!

Since then, I’ve started (and now almost finished) another quilt top where all the blocks have red centre strips and at least one yellow strip in them. I’m expecting to have it finished in the next few days, and will post a photo.

    I think the green border is doing it’s job perfectly and pulling all those blocks together. Great job :)
