I bought a kit from Connecting Threads because I fell in love with the colors. I'm not even a "red" person but the combination of aqua and red with this gorgeous tropical print did me in. I sketched the quilt in EQ and decided that I would increase the block size from 9" to 12" so the quilt, designed initially without borders, would be upsized from 54" square to 72". This would be good for a couch quilt. Here's a picture courtesy of Connecting Threads website:
Aqua outer border and red inner border:
I can't decide which I like better. No rush, of course, because I have only made 6 of the 36 required blocks. But I like to think ahead.
So which do YOU like?
