UFO – what to do with the outer border

My goal for February is to finish the top and bottom of the quilt and be in the process of quilting it. I linked up with A lovely year of finishes to give me the incentive I need.
A Lovely Year of Finishes

So currently, my first quilt is still a UnFinished Object. I am posting today as I would like some feedback on the border by the greater quilting community (linking up with Amanda @ CrazyMomQuilts).

I have finished 1/2 of the top of my 4 seasons quilt. I am really liking the choice of the Notting Hill, Joel Dewberry fabric choice for the borders. Below, are the pictures of the season panels of the quilt, that will help explain my options.

I have two options for the main outer border, and would like feedback to help me make a decision, as I am not sure which way to go.

Option 1: I was thinking of putting a parallelogram (1/2 chevron) pattern on the edge for the main border, which is shown currently below.

Option 2: The inside borders are just a simple straight line border using scraps of varying sizes – should I use this design also for the outer border?

What do you think?

WiP Wednesday: Fall Quilt Panel

So I am back blogging after taking a two week break. I was enjoying a great vacation with my parents who are visiting from New Zealand.

I did manage to get further in the 4 seasons quilt (see previous blogs for ongoing progress). I finished all 4 panels, fall/autumn panel was the most recent one. Here are some photo’s:

Four Season’s Quilt Work in Progress

Today’s Wednesday’s work in progress – this idea is so great as it keeps me on task so I can share the progress I am making on the various projects I have going. WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

This week I wanted to share where I am up to with the four seasons quilt. The front of this quilt has four panels representing an apple tree for each season. I now have Spring and Winter complete…Summer is underway with darker green leaves and apples. I have blogged previously about this quilt which you can find here: last update and the first post.
