I have been auditioning.  What?!?!

Okay, not *me* really.  I have been auditioning borders!

I decided that Julia’s baptism quilt really did need borders.  It just wasn’t finished.  But the border I mocked up here just wasn’t doing anything for anybody.  It was *way* too dark.

So I went through my fabrics and auditioned auditioned and auditioned some more.  Light green?  Medium green?  yellow piping?  pink inner border or green then pink then green again?

And then when I finally decided on something, I didn’t have enough of it.

So I went to the store and auditioned their choices.  And initially bought incorrectly.  Incorrectly in that it didn’t work either.  I blame that on the 7 a.m. sale skewing my senses!

BUT!  I finally have my border choices made!  YIPPEE!  Good thing too, because this quilt needs to be done for the quilt show in September – Yikes!

More pictures to come soon enough.  🙂
