Stuck on the Border

A few years ago, a friend gave me some cute fabric from “The Magic of Oz” collection by Wilmington Prints.

I love shoes (almost as much as I like fabric) so the ruby slippers print was the perfect gift for me.


In the process of cleaning my sewing room, I found a favorite book by Sandy Bonsib.  I love Sandy’s patterns and there are several in this book that are on to my “to do” list.  The pattern “Kaleidoscope Kaper” seemed like a good fit for my ruby slippers fabric!


I cut out all my triangles using the template in Sandy’s book.  Easy, no problem!


Four sets of two triangles start to look like a kaleidoscope.


I am liking this block!


Polka dot corners add some new texture and interest.


Nine kaleidoscope blocks will make a nice pillow, don’t you think?


So…I am stuck on the border of my ruby slippers pillow!

Do I go with basic black?

What about a red checked binding?

    For me, it would be red check. But I have to see it in place to know. I almost never use black binding – a personal preference only.
