What was I thinking? Serene Meadow
I was thinking that I wanted to do a blanket where the EDGING was the focal point for a change. Generally, my work tends to focus on the interior of the blanket and I often don't want to call too much attention to the border because of all the interesting goings on in the middle. This time, I wanted to play with the reverse. Because of this, I planned the edging first and calculated the math of the interior based on what I needed for the first row of edging. If I could do anything differently, I would have done the edging BIGGER. On the swatch the edging seemed huge, but compared to the finished blanket, I wish I had made it a good 2-3" bigger.
What do you think? Which is the feature you focus on when choosing a project to make? ... the interior or the edging/border? Do you love a great edge or is the edge an afterthought?
