Sashiko Sampler border auditions

The sashiko sampler all tacked up on the wall... ready to audition borders... 




The pieced blocks were taken from Susan Briscoe's Japanese Quilt Blocks to Mix and Match, as were all but four of the sashiko designs.  I loved making this quilt.  I used several pieces of vintage katazome indigo in it.  And "mixing and matching" designs was indeed a lot of fun. 

So - borders.    Probably not this stripe....



Probably not this gorgeous brilliant blue indigo...


I do like how using the same dark indigo used throughout will make the blocks "float":



With that decided.... all that's left is to measure, cut, measure and cut... and sew on these borders... but I can think of 100 ways to productively procrastinate;)...
