A day of frustration

 I auditioned my planned border fabric today and aside from the fact that I could not get good light to take a decent photograph I am just not convinced that it is the right choice.
So out I went to see if I could get some more of the black squiggly fabric which is the easy choice but of course it is not available.  I saw this black fabric and although I hate using such a black fabric coz it attacts lots of fluff I think it is the best bet.
 It is not actually a solid black but has these cool aboriginal motifs on it.
 I didn't know how much I needed so I bought half a meter and will do the maths on Thursday.  No time tomorrow as it is an Aussie Hero sewing day.

Till next time................happy stitching!


  1. I think either of those is just fine. The total effect will be quite stunning.

  2. I love the aboriginal motifs! The black carries out your theme best, but either way the quilt will be pretty!

  3. I like both of them. The black is probably the way to go! cathy

  4. ooh! I like that fabric xx go with your heart and it will be good xx

  5. I think your black border with the aboriginal design is the perfect choice. Happy Aussie Hero sewing.

  6. Jan-Maree I like the second black one. Hope you are having a great day.

  7. i like the black better too have a good time tomorrow

  8. I think the black works the best.
