Gradient Experiment

I'm still playing with the Riley Blake Solids fat quarter bundle I got from www.fatquartershop.com.  I came up with this simple gradient experiment.  When I planned it out i liked the idea of a border to float the piece....
Finished but...
I felt like the medium gray border lessened the gradient effect so I decided to take the binding off and cut the border off...
This is what I ended up with... I'm not sure I made the right decision, I kinda like the original better but it's too late now to turn back.  It does fix the gradient problem but it loses something in the process.  Live and learn... on to the next fabric adventure!


  1. I love all the quilts on your blog! I love the solid colors, and someday I hope to do a lot of the same kind of things. They are so dramatic, and your quilting if fabulous!

  2. I like it with the border cut off.

  3. The gradients really pop; I like both versions but then I don't think I've ever met a quilt I didn't like. :)
