Doll Quilt continued

Pretty much finished the Doll Quilt top today. I put the thin line around the inner border because I wanted a little POP of color ouside the blue blocks. Now I wonder if it would better have been wider, and not so close in.

Once it was "finished" I measured it, and it was TOO large. Therefore I chopped off an inch from each side of the last border. And though I liked it bigger, I also like it this size.

I'm not real pleased with in in total. Maybe I will make another one with little batik blocks and see if I like that one better. There's time left, since these are not due until mid-September.
Walk through the meadow, seeing liatris in bloom
Sunday drive through town
Fresh corn on the cob!

I like the chalkiness of the wavy lines in the background print. It like a watercolor wash and contrasts great with the bright print. what fun!!

I think it looks great the way it is. The colors are just lovely, and I really like the thin line! Aren't batiks beatiful?
