Bowls With Borders
I had a hard time for several days deciding what colors I wanted to make the bowls with borders quilt. I then decided to make is somewhat neutral so it can go in my kitchen which I just painted. My kitchen colors are tan, black, and white. Therefore, I ended up making my quilt with mostly black and white colors. I did want to add a splash of color so I also used some green on each of the bowls.
At first, I wasn't sure if the black and white worked. I did realize that I needed to alternate a light bowl (mostly white) with a dark bowl (mostly black). This is only the second project that I have paper pieced and I was so happy that it was easy and quite enjoyable to do. I ended up stacking a total of twelve bowls and decided this was the perfect size to hang in my kitchen. I might make another one sometime in the future and use some bright and vibrant colors, but for now I love this one!
