Briar Rose

Briar Rose

My quilt top for Briar Rose is now done and I need to decide if I am going to add borders. My blocks are bigger than the original pattern so I am going to play around with ideas for the borders, or perhaps no borders. I love the fact that other than the background, this is a completely scrappy quilt. I have definitely been drawn to scrappier quilts lately. This had originally started out as a baby quilt, but now I think it has become a quilt for myself.

Linking to Monday Making.

Love the pattern and I really like it with the bigger blocks. Are these 3.5 in squares?

I've seen this pattern (or maybe just a similar one) done in controlled colors. But I really like this scrappy version. I have this thing that I think white on the outside is just begging to get dirty. I probably would put some sort of border on it. Try auditioning different fabric and see if you like the way it looks.

I love your fabric! The scrappy look is controlled, and the blues and oranges set it off. I wouldn't be terribly afraid of white on a quilt. Just don't be afraid of throwing it in the washer to keep it looking fresh. And, eat your chocolate somewhere else! : )
