Nancy's SAL..........

Nancy has been emailing me and here is her first block...........
She has all the others traced, bordered and ready to stitch............
This is what she wrote in part of her email.............
 The first one (woops picture below) is the layout I originally had planned, then I thought, maybe the black sashings, not sure about that, I was going to use the black for the binding just to kind of pop it, but I'm pondering that and very open to opinions, LOL. If I do go with the sashings I might use one of the striped for bindings, but I never know until I get ready for it!

Looks great Nancy... I like the black border more than the other way. I love how the red and green intermix when it's all joined together!

Thanks so much! I agree completely after seeing the photos again. i was told in a class one time to look at your quilt through a digital image and you will see things better. I believe that's true. Hugs...

I wouldn't go for the stripes! Takes away the attention from the lovely stitcheries. The black border looks pretty, just as the border!

I think I'd just use the black for the border,your blocks are lovely :) Barb.

Thanks so much everyone, I've been looking at my fabrics today and thinking that the black would be good for the border because it has the red and green through it. But I'll take a picture of a couple of other border options to get your opinions. It really does help me and I truly love to read your input on it. Hugs to all...
**I bought those striped pieces a while back just to use as narrow bindings...a very small dose of those goes a long way! I find that if I look at them for too long I actually get a headache, LOL!
