I was going to show you lots of choices for the border, but this is done now. It's layered with backing and batting and ready to quilt.
I don't know if you see it but it's a tree, with grass and sky.The blue will be binding.
I sew from the joy in my heart.
Whether it's abstract, or whimsical, realistic, or a bed quilt. It's the same with my paintings, drawings, and all hand made items. I have not had joy lately, and haven't been able to sew.
I trust in the process, and the drive to create. I know it will return. When it does, I will quilt this lovely piece.
Just for interest, I went through about 20 border possibilities before returning to this one. I knew I wanted to do the squares but my husband said it distracted from the center.
I ended up ripping out the placement along the borders, mixing in different colors and then I quite liked it.
Sometimes you have to let go of a choice and look at a problem with new vision.
