Waiting for Borders

The center of the ninepatch swaps quilt is together.

Really happy with the results. Neutrals are not my normal "go to " for setting or sashing but it really makes this jumble sale come together.

The brights pop while the older "uglies" are cut small enough to just be colour.

There are a few contemporary fabrics that would give away the age of the quilt but it also has some oldies. Just yesterday I spotted a green version of a print I had in cream. It was from my early ,early 90's stash

The center measures 80 "× 60".  The quilt will go to the waiting to be sashed pile. I bought the neutral on sale so there is plenty for the borders and binding. My goal is to keep the colors dancing across the quilt.

Still on crutches so ironing the top and cutting yardage is on the back burner. 

Moving on to cutting scraps . Small projects for a while.

Have a happy day.

It's lovely!

I haven't seen this design layout before. Is it your own?

Yay for getting so much sewing done! I'm impressed! You are so right that the colourful scraps look wonderful set off by the neutral fabric. This quilt top really is a fun party of colour and eras.

It looks great Terry! I love using neutrals to clam the beasts, if you know what I mean? Hugs Nat
