I've been busy working on my border for Wendy's Possum Magic quilt ... and boy have I had some fun with this one!
This is how I received the quilt from the lovely Jo ...
|Pondering a 3rd border on the design mattress|
I think Jo was on the right track adding some pink into the mix ... it brightens the quilt up a bit and reflects the specks of colour included in Wendy's original centre as well as complimenting the gorgeous fabrics Sharon used in her 2nd border.
I still thought that the lime green star was a tad too prominent amongst all the blue and purple so I decided to add a ring of colour to help balance out the star. I also decided that my border had to have a larger scale than the previous two borders, again to balance out the star.
Along came the perfect charm pack through @cotton_factory_destash on IG.
It's lovely jewel tones compliment this quilt beautifully whilst still adding a zing of colour.

If you have a little boo-peep at Wendy's blog you'll be treated to an abundance of colour on colour quilts, so I thought (and hoped) that all this colour wouldn't offend her.
and an inside shot to get another perspective of all that colour ...
and a stained glass shot just because I can :)
I'll be sending this lovely peacock quilt off to Carla now to work her magic. Happy Wednesday everyone!
I'll be linking up to WIP Wednesday and Let's Be Social ... hope to see you there!
