I'm getting more and more excited to be doing this BOM. This quilt is going to turn out so awesome! In case you didn't know about it...check out Sew Lux Fabric to subscribe to the PDF patterns or pick up a quilt kit.
I can't even tell you how long it took me to choose the colors for the first border! I knew I wanted the mini border to be yellow and the flying geese to be aqua. But I had the hardest time choosing the fabric for the flying geese background. I thought purple would look cool but I just didn't have the right purple. I didn't want anything too dark since the center block had that black polkadot print.
I looked through all my purples and pulled a few fabrics but none of them were the right. Then I looked through my FQ bundles and came across this Architextures print and thought it was perfect! I wanted to bring some red into the quilt...so I thought red for the corners was a good choice and didn't overpower the quilt so far.
It's hard to capture the true colors of the quilt but the center block triangles are Lime green and the mini border is yellow.
