There is more progress on the Mi Familia quilt and we are excited! This quilt has been a collaborative effort between Ann (owner of Thread-Bear in Las Vegas, NM) and me and we make quite a team!
Today we added the thin black print border, auditioned about 8 fabrics for the wide floral border, and eventually decided on this greenie one.
Here is a closer look at some of the details:
For the past three years or so that particular green has been my go-to color to make a quilt "pop." Love those half circles? Read the previous post to see how Ann made that inspired choice.
The black batik border is next, with the flying geese in opposite corners. The batik has streaks, some of which echo the colors used in the center panels.
While we are working on this project I just can't stop smiling. It's a friendly picker-upper. Maybe it's those grinning guys in the center, but it's just a happy quilt!
