I started first with the idea of making the pieced border the third and outer border. I went with a border of white and then with green.
Had to see in that photo - here is another angle
The quilt was reading as too green.
Next step was to take the tri-rec blocks I made - like the ones on the right, and sew that against the green. Nope - wasn't happening for me. They just didn't look right against the green.
So I removed the green border and went with the 2nd border as the tri-recs. Quilt doesn't read so green any more - which is good. However, that red really catches the eye. I'd prefer to see the aqua catch the eye. I want to help one see the 'circles' that the blocks form.
After I get the top and bottom tri-rec border on, I will audition different out borders - I'm thinking about aqua or white. (None of these photos are truly capturing my colors here.)
Any thoughts here for me?
