Run Free Run Wild complete – finally!

Well, I got this one done a few days late. I was hoping to have it done by Nov 1, but I ran into a couple of problems and a few “re-do’s” and a whole lot of ripping was going on with this one.

I do have to do applique around the parts that are overflowing into the black from the panel – but I have to figure out what is the best way to do that for this situation. I originally started with 5 colors on each end, but I just didn’t like how it was ending – it just dropped off. Even though the last little piece is tiny it just makes it look more complete. I was going to put another 3″ border on the top and bottom but I just really liked how this looked when I hung it up. It probably could be shortened up but I just really like how it is.

I have seen this pattern done both ways – with the top and bottom gradients pointing in and pointing out. To be honest the original plan was to have it pointing away from the boarder, but because of a mess up when I put it together the second time, it ended up like this and I’m okay with that. I think it really highlights the panel this way.

Another thing about this quilt top that was really cool is that the gradients were all in my stash –  part of a set of fat quarters I purchased 5+ years ago. The Panel I had from 2011 so the only thing I “purchased” for this was the black background. And I had actually just purchase 5 yards of Kona Black from Joanns with a coupon – so I did actually empty a project box out of the tower on this one!
