A wealth of quilty talent!!
One of the projects included in the books, is the Lady of the Lake Quilt by Rita of Red Pepper Quilts (the bottom right quilt – pictured below).
I remember when I first saw the Lady of the Lake quilt on Rita’s blog. I was in awe of all of those perfect little triangles. I remember thinking how complex that quilt looked but that one day, I’d like to try it.
Well here is my chance. It is one of the patterns in We Love Color.
I’ve been inspired by We Love Color and have been working on my “solid” WIP – a project which I started about a year ago.
It’s always been one of those projects which I work on when I’m in between projects… and then quickly put away when inspiration strikes. It is made up with 4 kona cotton charm packs – 2 white and 2 were an assortment of solids.
I’ll blog about this quilt in another post – when I figure out how to finish it. It’s too small to be of much use right now, so I’m contemplating adding a wide border… but I’m not sure how to go about it.
Would a print border work?
Perhaps black/white spots or stripes maybe?
What do you think?
