WIP Wednesday

Some of the blogs do a feature every week called WIP Wednesday where they show a work in progress. I don’t want to do that every week, but somehow this week it seems appropriate.

This is the project that started the whole Bullseye project. This has been on my mind lately, for some reason that I don’t know. I always planned to do a border with curves in it, so it would look like a curve was going all the way around the quilt. I found directions. I have a test piece and I just decided that was not the way to go.

This quilt doesn’t lend itself to the self bordering technique. I have a lot of leftover circles that I could use in some way, but I don’t know what way. Aside from slapping on some borders and calling it good, I don’t have any ideas. Do YOU have any ideas? Even a little spark would be helpful. Let me know.

  1. funny that should come to mind… I just found my circles the other day and was wondering what to do about them. They are bigger than I like to work with and such a mish-mash of fabrics. I think of Kerris when I see them. I’d keep the border very simple. with maybe a thin strip of color (maybe the turquoise) and then black. Oh, now I see there isn’t much edge so I’d go with black and then bind in turq.

    I enjoyed the review yesterday, but wish you’d linked to pix of some of the projects you mentioned.

    1. I’ll link to some of the others, Mrs. K, but you also see them from the black bar above if you put your cursor on ‘about’ and the choose quilts and series quilts.

  2. I agree with Susan — keep it simple. Frame it in black and then use a bright color to bind. The center of the quilt is active enough that I don’t think it needs anything else.

  3. Undo your circle blocks to make 1/4 blocks, then alternate the 1/4 blocks up and down around the edge. Or, if you’d like an uneven edge, just do them with the point toward the outside and bind in black bias.
