Welcome to South Texas – at 41 degrees and rain all day – mostly the type that will soak into the ground – I am happy happy! I have completed the Center Medallion of Mountmellick and the first border!!!!!! This makes me so happy since I tried to start this quilt in 2014….I am so pleased with it. The mitered corners are appliqued down and the 4 flowers completed and appliqued! I chose to not add any BP leaves from the Dutch fabric like Di Ford did, nor did I add the diamonds with the circles. I did not want mine to be so busy!
So far, everything is square and right on target for measurements! Yea Di Ford!!!!!
Now for the real fun part. The next border consists of 48 circles that were sewn onto a background fabric grid! Now to make them into Border Number 2. From this:
And now into this:
I am now going to do a test to make sure that all the itty bitty HSTs are true and accurate to provide the 2″ border (finished) that will become the 2nd Border! Wish me luck!
Have a great day and enjoy winter if you are experiencing the lovely cold weather! This is my favorite type of winter. Hoping we have more and more rainy days this winter to make up for another drought!
