I couldn't believe today's quilt really wanted to have that busy black and cream fabric as part of its border, but it did. And now that I see it all together and finished, I like it. Using corduroy gives such a soft feel to the surface and plays with the light. I used cream thread for one section , a subtle sub note, and black for the majority. I like the effect of using two fabrics for the border.
I quite like the compositions of the detail photos, too.
