This is my Garden Fence quilt, and it was on my design wall until I finished sewing the top together. When I look at it all I see is yellow....like a big yellow duck. I wanted this quilt for on the twin bed in our spare room so in order to make the quilt larger in addition to the borders (to be added later), I put 2 inch wide sashing in between the blocks and rows. I think the yellow overwhelms the fabrics (Lovely by Moda). Every other Garden Fence quilt I have seen has either used white or off white. I just thought the yellow would be something different. Well it's different but different isn't necessarily always good.
Here are my options:
I could take the whole quilt apart and substitute white or off white for the yellow. This would take longer than cutting out another quilt and sewing it together.
I could cut the 2 inch sashing down to 1 inch and add the borders.
I could put the borders on this one, donate it and move on.
What to do? I would appreciate any input.
