Now that the blockage has cleared in the sewing room I am working on the Row by Row that the ladies at the quilt club collaborated on. Here is the last progress I made on it, laying it out with some joining rows. And this tells the story of how it was made.
I've now joined it all together and I've taken a very poor photo with my phone camera so that I can play with borders in EQ6. Here it is without borders and underneath there is also a picture of suggested borders taken from the quilting programme. What do you think? worth going ahead with or shall I play a bit more? the fabrics I've used in the borders are fabrics from the programme and are just suggestions of colours, I'll choose fabrics close to those colours from my stash.
Mm, the more I look at it the more I think that instead of the extra 1" dark strip at the top (necessary to bring the measurements to the right length for the strips of 3" squares) I'll use a similar strip of turquoise at the bottom to bring some of the luminous light it there and 'bring home' the turquoise in the borders.
