On Ringo Lake with Borders

Image may contain: food

I suppose On Ringo Lake is finally done! The quilt top anyways! I decided to add two borders to frame all those little pieces.

No automatic alt text available.

Here's a close up so you can see the fabrics a little better. The black is not solid. It has a little bit of a marbled look to it. The black finishes at 1.5 inches. The blue border is a batik. It was the only fabric I could find that sort of blended with the rest of the quilt. The blue border finishes at 3.5 inches. The binding will be the same blue batik. 

On Ringo Lake will have to wait to be quilted. I've got another project all set to quilt on the longarm. I'll post pictures when there's something to see!

Hope any of you affected by the East coast storm made out okay. I was at work the whole day worrying about what I'd be finding at home. It turned out to be fine. We have branches all over the yard but that's about it. We didn't lose power which is a miracle in itself! It could have been so much worse.

  1. Your Ringo Lake turned out beautifully. I like how the borders contain it..
    We lost power here for over 24 hrs...but are back on now--it seems that we just sat around but I am very tired out from it all--AND now they're predicting another event for Wed-Thurs--Oh Spring where are you? Hugs, Julierose

    1. Thanks, Julierose! So happy with this finish! I'm not surprised you're tired. I find having no power being very stressful. It's such an inconvenience. I'm happy to hear your power is back. I hope we don't get another huge storm like this past one. There's only so much we can take!!

  3. Looks great! I love the dark blue in place of the aqua. I wish I'd realized at the beginning that the coral and aqua are too close in value. Something I'll keep in mind for the next mystery.

    1. Thank you, Barbara! I basically chose these colors in place of Bonnie's just because that's what I found in my fabric stash. I like how it came out! This was my first mystery. Have you done many??
