My 'antique' blocks are set together and awaiting borders, but nothing jumps out of the stash as a likely candidate, so I might have to go looking for something in the shops.

These blocks were all handpieced, and I loved choosing my best fabrics for them. The sashing is a deep crimsony-pink rather than the red in the top photo, and I'm really pleased with how it turned out. It just took me about six years longer than I thought it would.
Keryn and I and the patchwork group are off on our annual excusion tomorrow, so I'm hoping to come home with a few border pieces for my problem projects. We're leaving at 7.15 in the morning, so I'm off to bed soon, no sewing for us tonight.

I really like this quilt. The blocks are very interesting. I like your fabric choices. Why did it take you so long?

Will be looking forward to seeing your border choice. It looks so great, very antique-y. Have a good time at your sewing retreat!

Or maybe a really dark brown? It is hard when the photos dont show true colours.
