I finally finished my Maggie's First Dance quilt top.
At the beginning of this quilt along with Jacqueline Steves, I selected the fabrics to use. Three of them (shown below) came from the same line. My plan was to use the solid-ish fabrics in the quilt and the wild print for the outer border.
Very early in the process, it became quite obvious that the fabric I had selected for the border wasn't going to work. That fabric didn't look any better once the blocks were sewn together either!
I had 2 other print fabrics in this line, but they were both just as bad as the first. (I know what you're thinking: "how did she ever think any of those fabrics would work with the applique flowers in that quilt?" And I have nothing to say in my defense! :)
In the end, I went with with the same blue-gray that I used in the blocks. I thought it would be super boring, but now that it's done I kind of like it.
