There is nothing wrong with the colour Orange - look what I found on my walk around the farmyard this morning......
It's a beautiful colour isn't it?SO, WHY have I been so scared to start on my border for my hexie-garden?--read on--
With a lot of help from my friends, I selected a border fabric for my hexie-quilt several months ago. After much trial and error, we decided this (below) really was the best fabric - it made my quilt top and all the flowers SING!
And the little flowers on it suited my hexie-flowers really well.
AND I bought metres of it - enough for a backing too!
BUT I have been so scared to use it!!
I'm just not usually an 'orange' person (for evidence, look at my other blog posts - it's not really a colour you see very often!) and using it seemed to be quite a bold move...
But today I'm being brave - One Flower Wednesday has come around and I need to move along on this project....
I had a sugar-fix and a strong coffee, took a deep breathe and --CUT--
Ahh - I've made a start; I've prepped my first hexie for the border!
This feels good, I'm over my hurdle and raring to go!!
Happy Wednesday everyone!
