Breast of Friends BOM Progress

I have made some progress on my Breast of Friends BOM.


I’m pleased at how is has come together.  It is nice and flat and seems to be square.  I am still deciding where to go from here.  I think a ‘peeper’ or very narrow border needs to be next in a colour that will frame these blocks (dark pink perhaps) Then another wider border with the narrow border fabric as the binding??? I will let it ruminate for a few days while I decide!

Thanks for visiting.

I like your idea of a darker pink as an inside border, to set it off. If you'd rather not make TWO borders, you can just fold a narrow piece of dark pink and sew it into one border as a flange. That's a good effect without making your finished quilt larger.

Definitely the diagonal stripe as binding. That's my favorite way to bind a quilt.

Keep up the great work! This is a beautiful stitchery quilt.

Your colours look great. A dark pink would look great around the border to frame it. I have made that same quilt but I have finished it. I just need to do the bride and groom block and it finished. Im not a keen on as was when I first start it. See how it works out. You might have inspired me
