Moments ago I finished putting on the border for the Origins Pinwheel Quilt top. My original plan for the border was something much simpler – just rectangular blocks of the linen fabrics but after doing some soul searching (and Google searching) I thought this might work for the quilt instead!
I broke out my favorite flying geese ruler (EZ Stars and Geese by Kimberly Einmo) and went to work. This did take several hours to do but I think it needed a good border. The finished top measures 50.5″ x 56″ now.
This quilt top is difficult to photograph indoors due to all the dark fabrics but I tried my best with my popup flash. Anyway – some the border fabrics are actually from Robert Kaufman’s Linen line – they were a gift from a podcast listener and I thought the colors would work with the Origins fabric line. I was right! The black fabric for the geese wings and the rest of the border is some textured black print that worked with the linen and the blacks in the origins fabric.
Now the agonizing decision of how to quilt it.
