I got the purple stripe added to the quilt. I love the dark purple against the dark green. Lovely.
I picked up the material for the borders and backing. I got a lovely shades of orange and green batik for the back and a great dark green for the border. I wanted a fabric with all colors but Fabric Depot didn’t have anything that would work. The colors were either too bright or too muted or not the right shades or in splotches too big in scale.
I also picked up a gold and a deep red. The gold will be a flange around the center of the quilt, with the red acting as a 5/8″ stopper between the gold flange and the green border.
