Well, I worked on my idea for this quilt most of the day. My idea was to cut a border out of the background fabric and applique pink scallops on the same background fabric of the blocks, but it looked horrible. Then I tried numerous ways to come up with a second design for the border for Dresden Heaven (which is turning into Dresden Hell)….. and that did not work.
The background fabrics for this quilt are from the P&B Apple Cider line and the border is from the same line and the color ties in with the background fabric.
I am happy that I am to this point. Now to sew the buttons on and it will be in the “quilting” que. This one has to be hand quilted, but it will be long stitch quilting as there is not enough to really do heavy quilting. Machine and long arm are out since I chose to go with buttons.
Like I said, it is not what I had envisioned for the border but at least it is done and now I am down to 2 quilts! Yea. The border fabric has a very small swirling pattern and it really compliments the background fabric, but it does not appear that way in the picture. Thanks to Clay, it is a good picture. One good thing about the border I used now can be replaced if I change my mind! But NOT NOW! I am DONE! LOL
Have a wonderful week, happy stitching and hopefully some Fall weather!
