I wanted to take my hand dyed blue fabric and start at one corner with the lights, progressively getting darker towards the opposite corner. I found an idea online where you add a narrow inner border and then a pieced border, so I made the blues follow the fading colour in the border too. Why stop there? I am attempting to do the same with the binding, once the block is quilted then I can get the binding figured out a little better. Here are some photos.
Somehow this grid and scribbles is my "master plan"
Dulux is so helpful by making sure he is right in-between me and the ironing board.
Wait, now he is helping me sew by laying his head on my leg. Guess someone would like some attention!
OK here are all my 1 1/2" squares sewn on the inner part of the block.
The block with the black inner border, the pieced blue fading border and a bit wider outer border.
Roughly sewing and fitting the border to the block, will figure it out later once the block is quilted.
