A Border for my Butterflies


Put the blocks together today and time to decide on a border. I had some of the fabric that looks like row after row of ricrac on black which I used for the butterfly
bodies but not enough for borders or binding. Spotted a bolt at the quilt shop the other day so went and bought a piece. I fussycut a narrow border and really like the way that looks. Decided to do piano keys - or whatever you call them - and first did a sample of a strip of the dotted background and then a print and so on and so on. Put that on the wall - not taken with it at all. Started slapping prints one after another and think that looks great! So now I will do the borders and make a narrow binding out of the ricrac fabric and will be happy with the way it turns out. (Click to enlarge)
