Last week I took this quilt top to the quilt shop to
find something for the border.
I knew it was going to be a challenge...
and it was.
I finally settled on this polka dot batik and like it okay.
It's going to be a boy quilt,
but it looks more feminine to me now.
I used some Ombre fabrics for the "confetti" pieces in the quilt,
going from dark down to light.
The border fabric has all of the quilt colors in the polka dots.
I think I'm going to do straight line quilting down the
white zigzag rows.
Time to start quilting!
For the first time, I've decided to participate
in Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt.

I was really drawn to the colors in this one,
which is odd...
I am not usually a fan of purple.
The first clue is underway.
Four patches made from 2" strips.
I have around 70 of the 221 sewn together.
Guess what I'll be working on today!
