Borders and a Giveaway Alert

After several comment, some play with the photo editor, and auditioning some fabric: The choice for the borders on the Wonky Willy-Nilly Bright quilt will be a rich purple.  The red arrow points to what is probably the closest to the actual color since the flash lightens the closest area and darkens the distant area.
Another thought that came from an email subscriber (I think) was to not completely contain the wildness.  So I am planning to put a few pieced sections in the borders to extend the design outward just a bit.  It is possible that I will make the borders all different sizes just to add a bit more whimsy to the design.  
This is why comments are so great.  You people inspire me to go on a creative journey.  And for that I am truly grateful.

Of course, I wanted to tell you about a great giveaway at Craftsy.  They are running a giveaway that runs from June 1 to June 30.  You can win a mystery box filled with Craftsy's newest classes, freshest kits and hottest products.  Plus you win a second box for a friend!  Click here to go to the entry form! 
If you don't have a Craftsy account yet, you will need to register with them. The plus side to that is that you can then take some of the free classes.

A free class that I really enjoyed was not related to quilting at all.  But I do love to cook at times and the class on Knife Skills was a great learning experience for me. (and for a certain Left-Handed friend.)

Comments are welcomed. I will reply when possible unless otherwise stated. Of course if you are a "No Reply Blogger"- I can not reply. Links in posts may be affiliate links for which I am compensated if you click through and purchase.

By the same token, you inspire us Gene! I never went for wonky, willy nilly, colorful anything until enjoying your projects. Actually, had never even heard the word wonky. I love the name of this quilt!
