In 2 minds....
Okay, this is what I ended up doing with my burgundy shibori. I selected the best 15" square from each fat quarter, and sewed them together (tha bit is fine). Then I dyed some green fabric in a shade (Leaf Green) that was the opposite to Burgundy on the colour wheel. That's also fine. I wanted to give the quilt some zing, seeing as it was so monochromatic.
However, I can't decide whether I like the result. So here's the choices:
leave it with the contrasting 6" green border
cut this down to say 2" tops and add a Burgundy outer border.
