I am making 2 quilts with the Neptune line for my 2 youngest boys (13 & 12). I had a couple charm packs and a jelly roll. I didn’t want to buy any more fabric (actually I have been put on a fabric buying ban for the rest of the month) so I used the charm packs to make the center of 1 quilt, and I am using part of the jelly roll to make the center of the other quilt. I have 2 full size black sheets and 2 full sized apple green sheets that no longer fit on the beds we have. This green matches the lightest green in the fabric line. I don’t care for the way the green looks on the front, but thought maybe for the back. I plan on adding a 10-inch border around the center of the quilt to make decent sized lap quilts for them to watch TV with and travel in the car with (we are BIG blanket people).
Why do I need help you ask? Well, I can’t decide what to do. Do I do the black border with a green back? If so what binding… black? (want to use the sheets don’t like the green for the binding)… Do I do a black border and a black back? If so what binding (I don’t care for the look of the green as the binding, remember). Is it ok to do black border, black back, and black binding?? HELP…I don’t know what to do.
Here are a few pics I took…maybe it will help you help me :)
In the pic it is hard to see that the black does match…the squares look more navy in the pic.
Maybe I should wait until December and order one of the matching black fabrics for the border and then do the black sheet for the back and binding…hmmmm
