Border Patrol

Hello Everyone,

Remember my last post on this quilt, if not click here. I can say that I have been working away, little by little at paper piecing the border for my Judy Niemeyer quilt. All I can say is, I am in love with it!!

Disclaimer: Sorry about the poor photo quality, it was night time when I took the photos and the lighting wasn't as good in my studio then.


So here are the beginnings of the borders. There are left and right sides, so I had to make sure that I was placing them properly. This is definitely a reason a design wall is wonderful.


Adding the other side. It is really shaping up. So after I put the pieced borders on the design wall, I realized that I didn't have any more paper piecing to do. I then began to fill in the blank spaces with the fabric that I had cut from the templates.

And VOILA...


Here is what it looks like. Grant it I still have to piece all the units together to complete the top, but oh am I just sooooo happy with it. Judy and Kaffe make a terrific pair, don't you think? I am totally in love with this color scheme and the quilt.

So, I was thinking of what I should name this quilt (I am not that good at naming quilts), and am failing at a good name.

Do you have any thoughts on a good name?


Until Next Time...

Tickled Pink! That's what I'd call it.

I was trying to think of a name and then I scrolled down... I'm with Mary. Tickled Pink is a fantastic name!

My suggestion would be Strawberry Fields.

Linda said...

Well this makes me think of those juicy starburst candies so maybe something along those lines. I obviously am terrible at naming quilts too. I have a WIP that I call the Wedgie Project! Man I need a new name for that one! lol

Watermelon Icee.

Barb said...

That is amazing!!

Mary Grace McNamara said...

I thought the first picture was the finished quilt and I loved it like that! Then I saw the second picture with the corners filled in and loved it like that. But that last picture...wow! What a fabulous quilt! Sorry, no clever names as I'm not good that that part either! But it is gorgeous!

Passionately Pink - they will find the Cure. To honor all the women and men with the fight of their live. This quilt is Beautiful!

It is amazing Jackie! Yes, Kaffe and Judy work together so nicely. I have another fruit that it reminds me of more: Raspberry Junction!

Helen said...

It's amazing! I love 'tickled pink' as a name!

Sallie said...

Beautiful! My first thought for a name was Cherry Limeade.

Stephanie said...

So I'm the odd man out...I happen to love the name Border Patrol. Being from San Diego County that means something totally different to me. But I also think it looks like a Watermelon Explosion! Beautiful no matter what you call it.

mlm said...

That is amazing. I have always wanted to try one of her patterns by I am intimidated by choosing the right fabric. I agree with Sallie, Cherry Limeade is a great name.

Whatever name, the quilt es gorgeous. See you soon... Mari

It's striking! Thanks for sharing!

♥Duff said...

a stunner, Jackie! I was able to click on the photo and get a larger image--there is so much more to this quilt than what we originally see! The diagonal edges took my breath away! A name? Hmm... how about Starlight?

Belinda said...

WOW, that is going to be SOME great quilt!!! I will LOVE to see it quilted!!!

LynCC said...

Jackie, this is BEAUTIFUL! I love all the Niemeyer patterns, and just finished all the paper piecing for Glacier Star. I'll start assembling it next month (I divided it into monthly "installments" and worked it into my BOM schedule). I'll be doing Celtic Wave in the same fashion starting in September, probably, and you've sealed my thoughts about using Kaffe fabrics in it!! Thank you for sharing!!

Donna~~ said...

It's gorgeous--a great combo of fabrics & design! I can see why you love it! (no name suggestions from me--I can never name mine either)

Michelle said...

Ooooh! Beautiful! When I saw the colors, I immediately thought of a prickly pear! So that is my suggestion for a name.

Jean said...

I don't know about a name, but it is gorgeous. Can't wait to see it all finished! Great job!

Katherine said...

It reminds me of lime sherbet! Love the colors.

Selvage Quilter said...

Wow, Jackie! This is beautiful. I'd call it Nebula. But I like the other names too. I can't wait to see it in person.

Barb said...

How about Strawberry Burst?

Cathi said...

Jackie, this is absolutely beautiful!! I love the colours you chose for it!
I don't know why, but I immediately thought of Summer Watermelon as a name when I looked at it!

sewmeow said...

It's just beautiful....great job.

Thelma said...

Jackie, this quilt is simply stunning! Yes, Kaffe and Judy make a wonderful couple. How about, "Very Berrylicious"

Loretta said...

I am so not good at naming quilts! This is so gorgeous! I think lots of good names have been brought up.

LeAnn said...

Holy Guacamole?

It probably needs a prettier name.
Love your complimentary color scheme. It really makes that medallion pop.

Strawberry and Lime Starburst. Beautiful quilt.

Victoria said...

All those beautiful sharp points and lovely curves, wow! The first name that popped into my head was "Genesis", but I think all the other suggestions really celebrate the colorful exuberance of this delightful work!

After seeing your beautiful garden flowers this spring, it could only be called Jackie's Garden. Congratulations on a beautiful quilt!

Marcia W. said...

Pinkafdy or Pinked for short

Elzaan said...

What a lovely quilt.
I suggest Enigma as the name(being a puzzle or a riddle).

Mommarock said...

Berry Burst. I guess any berry color would look wonderful, but it just Bursts with joy..

Barb said...

Jackie I just love this quilt! I am so glad I saw it in the works in person! I will have to stop by and see it quilted!

I would call it Pink Cosmos.

Absolutely beautiful!

Sisterino said...

All of that pink and green makes me think of watermelon..and there's kind of a star shape.... I'd call it Wonky Watermelon Star

LOL

I then began to fill in the blank spaces with the fabric that I had cut from the templates.
