Improv....Technique 5.....Borders

Remember this Improv Quilt Top?

Pick Up Stix

30 blocks

measures  36 x 30 inches

I am impelled to give it a border treatment...

Last summer I did some thickened dye

screen printing:

This piece of screen printed fabric

might work for a border treatment...

I sliced it up into 6 inch strips...

I like it better already!

I auditioned strips on two sides 

of the pick up stix top...

I am liking it!

Here is the Pick Up Stix top:

This just screams.....FUN !

The X's and O's in the border

go great with the Pick Up Stix...

I am quilt.

Need to find a backing.

I will post images when I get it under the needle.
