My home is pretty quiet.  My niece left early afternoon after a week and my DH doesn't arrive from his business trip until later tonight.  I'm trying to catch up on things in my studio...

Earlier this week at Beverly's I picked up some fabric for the inner border.  Do you think it too bright?  I have yet to make the HSTs that go in the corners.  At first I thought it was too bright and now with the photograph it seems to work.  What do you think?  I purchased enough to go for the binding as well, but that may have to change to something a bit darker.  Don't think right now I'd like it in both places.  The pieced border isn't that big so the bright blue would be very close to each other.  Again, what do you think?

Now another "what do you think"...  I've got several suggestions going for a name for this project.  Several followers have mentioned these ideas: Kool Kolossal, Kabin Fever, Kloud, and Kentuck Knob.  I have found through Google searches Kootenay Kabins and Kwail Kabins.  Not sure about any of them...any other ideas or do you like one of these?

Oh did you notice in the photo I've added a watermark?  Tiffany set me up while she was here.  I'm still playing with this a bit, but I know how to try different things like size, color pen, and opacity.  I'll have it right eventually!

Enjoy the rest of your week.

The blue is pretty bright, but I like that it brings out the brighter blues from the blocks. On the name I don't have any great will let others weigh in on that one. Hope you get lots done today!

I think it looks great. The water mark is unique, I like it. Anxious to see what name you come up with. I Kentuck Knob, it is different???? Hugs

You know, I didn't notice that the blue was bright until you pointed it out. I think you can get away with it if, as you say, you don't also use it as binding.
Kootenay Kabins is the name that grabbed me because I have been in the gorgeous Kootenay National Park in British Columbia, and taken the ferry across Kootenay Lake. But if it doesn't have meaning to you, it may not be your best choice.
