It seems every time I ask for your help in choosing a border I audition several different fabrics and post photos and then I choose something entirely different!

Well it’s happened again! I was standing, dreamily looking at all the lovely colours in my stash when I realised I was fixing on the purples. Then I remembered I had some purple quilter’s lurex! I told one of my friends on the phone about my plan and her response to my suggestion was “It’s a bit out there”. Sounded good to me. Want to have a look? Well here it is.

The photos really don’t do it justice. The fabric had a black warp and a shiny purple weft and so as you move the colour changes. I’ve only sewn three borders so far but I really, really like it. It has the opulence I wanted for this quilt and I think a black binding will set it off nicely.

Please feel free to tell me what you think. I don’t mind if you don’t like it and want to say so as long as you say it nicely.
