Here's the quilt I'm currently working on for the next Hope Kids auction in April. I saw this quilt on another blog and have requested the name of the pattern so I can give credit to the designer. I've made mine different in that I have a solid border. The other quilt had a nice pieced border made with strips and cornerstones of pieced blocks.
I was going to put the blue border on without an inner border but I really like a little black and white there. However, I am not happy with what photo shows so I think I will go out and get a nice black and white stripe. I think that will set it off nicely. Anyway, if I can't find a good stripe I may just leave that inner border off.
Not so sure I like the check...it reminds me of auto racing...lol Not that there is anything wrong with that but I don't want this to read as a "boy" quilt. I don't know why I didn't take that check down before I took the photo! Also, unfortunately the photo doesn't quite show the brightness of the fabrics.
