The Border Is On!

I went from this...



To this...I dyed the white blocks with coffee today. The fabric arrived around 3 this afternoon and upon inspection I saw that the doves were not white, as they showed on my monitor. The coffee dyed the blocks to as perfect a color as I needed.

So, what do you think about this wallhanging now? You really have to see it in person to get the overall effect of how the border and cream blocks play so well together.

This is going to someone for a gift so we will wait and see what their reaction is to it.

I really liked how it turned out, but I thought the doves were going to be bigger.
