I didn't think it would be so hard to figure out what color to use for the cornerstones in this quilt. I've never had this much trouble before.
I originally thought I would use these light star grunge squares. But they do nothing for the quilt with this border.
So I thought I would use the same fabric as the sashing for the border and see how that looks - meh!
I found a coral colored fabric in the stash. Coral comes from the sea, right?
Ooooh! Too bold!
I tried a less intense red. It's interesting but it doesn't blow my socks off.
This red is nice but how does it look with the blue border?
That blue border looks like water but I think it draws too much attention to itself.
I tried a gray/brown from the Riverbanks line by Jeanne Horton. It's the right theme - kinda.
