I took some orphan blocks from the 'Honesty's Promise' quilt and added some sashing, more snowball corners, and multiple borders to make a quilt for the hospital Passages program.
The sashing and outside border are of a very dark purple, changing the entire feel of the design. I put the lighter colors in the middle which tends to lighten it a bit.
The sashing was from my stash and I used all of it up. Then I decided I needed the dark border and found this fabric on the left that was a close color. It was a print with a swirly line, though, so I did a stipple quilting in the sashing using a light thread that sort of mimiced it.
This was the first time I had done a two-toned binding, too. It was quite the brain strain to come up with the proper measurements to make the seam between the colors end up precisely on the turn, but I did it and I like it.
I did the two-toned binding because I didn't have any one binding fabric that went equally well on the back and the front of the quilt. Solved!
