Friday Night Sew-In / When Nature Calls #5

Here's what I've gotten done so far with my "When Nature Calls"
I added more trees that bleed into the filler blocks above and below the Outhouses.  I like the look of them.  So far the quilt measures 46" by 58".  I now have to decide on a border or borders..... any suggestions???

What a great scenic quilt!!! I love it, it's different and querky, a fun project!!!
I've been sitting here looking at it and I have no idea what sort of border would suit....maybe a timber/wood print to frame it???

Marie said...

Love all you do!! I think something woodsy would look good in the border. Hugs, Marie

I love it! The trees really add to it. I think a narrow green leafy border would look nice.

Rhonda, it looks great as is. Did you do this on EQ7? If so, did you draw your own desings on it? I still have not mastered drawing on EQ7.

I really think I would use a green to pop the greens in the trees. Of course I would probably pop some extra colors in there too....maybe some red as I see a touch of red in one of the blocks.

Okay, I think a thin border that matches the words on the quilt, then a pieced green, red, brown border around that.

Oh My Goodness! That is the greatest quilt EVER! I laughed out loud when I saw it! So creative! What an awesome idea!

sophie said...

LOVE the trees, I'm not sure if I'd add anything beyond a simple dark green border as a frame to the beautiful quilt.

What a creative idea! I love the "hole" concept ;)
I agree with everyone above who mentioned using green in the border. That's the first color that came to my mind, too.
Great FNSI!

HO..
LY..
SMOKES..
that's..
MAGNIFICENT!!! I've never seen a quilt like that before - it's totally amazing! Those outhouses are an absolute hoot, LOL!

My first thought when you mentioned border(s) was that it might be cool to surround the blocks with trees (something like a green tone on tone tree print) - it seems most of us had the same basic thought :)

What a great quilt!!
Whether you add borders or not it will be fabulous.♥

Joan said...

What an amazing quilt - its beautiful!

I'd have to go with green borders as others have mentioned but it would have to be the 'right' green and some leaves in it would look nice, or maybe a 'leaf' quilting pattern.
Where can I find this pattern as I'd love to try it?

Gari said...

This is wonderful and something my mother (89) would love. Is it a pattern?

Mrs A said...

Hello Rhonda,

Love the quilt you are working on,maybe green for the border but I would be putting a roll of toilet paper somewhere too.

Happy days.

WOW - I was thinking brown - something that looks like old wood... (You know like a real frame.)

The Calico Cat said...

I almost forgot - love the bleedy trees.
