Yum or Erk?

My hexie UFO has had me thinking hard. Stash diving over the weekend revealed an exciting find....
Several small pieces of some of the fabrics I used in the big hexies...yay! So I  have decided a combination of applique and small  3/4 inch hexie flowers using these fabrics would be perfect for the tan border....and may add a little continuity to the quilt.
 The first border however needed sorting before I moved on....I was DETERMINED to find something amongst my stash! I  finally decided on this blue/small brown print.
As I said in my heading....this may end up looking YUM or ERK!
I am reserving judgment until the applique and little hexie border are done. The final red border has this blue in it so I am hoping it will  gel rather than jar. Besides I banned the quilting and stitching police from my door long ago so anything is possible if I like it.
It wil be interesting to find out.
Lastly, thank you so much for taking my Tiny Teacup Teddies to your heart...it feels so lovely when you have enjoyed a creation so much and others love it too xx
Ok! Almost time to don the walkers and venture to my favourite place.....
Enjoy the rest of your day.
Namaste and Blesssings Michelle xxx

  5. I think the blue/brown is a good choice and I'm pretty sure I have some if you need extra. Anni complimented on the choice when I bought it at The Home Patch so it must be a good fabric! Love your walking track.
