Down the Rabbit Hole Rope Border

A couple of weeks ago I asked you all for advice on the rope border of my Down the Rabbit Hole quilt, or more specifically the fabric for the corner squares as I just couldn’t decide what worked best. Thank you to everyone who made a suggestion, it did help reading everyone’s ideas on the matter, even if I did end up going for something completely different!

The replies I received were pretty much split evenly between the sage green…

and the silver grey of the rabbits…

I still couldn’t decide between the two, the green gave a very dominant corner block and the  rabbit was very near the running rabbits and I would also have to decide on direction! I decided to ask Helen what she thought. She considered the two and then came up with a completely new idea…

…the passion flower grey of the previous border! Now why didn’t I think of that! It has the lightness of the rabbits but makes it appear like it’s part of the passion flower border. I think it works well. I’ve now stitched on the border, so that is another month of the QAL completed. It’s getting increasingly difficult to photograph as it gets bigger! I’ll show you my progress on the rabbit borders tomorrow with Kathy‘s Hand Quilt-a-long.Down the Rabbit Hole Quilt

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!
