I am actually onto the last border.
Yes!! I have decided to do some feathers... I have also included my trademark Ladybug - somewhere in the quilting.
I have 'sewn' a design onto some paper - no cotton in the machine - and pounced the design on. I . wont stick to that ( doesn't it look a mess ), but it will guide me.
I might add I am covered in chalk as I had to keep patting the design so I could change some places.
Large cream border
The blue here has large circles in the middle to fill the extra space.... The borders are all odd sizes.
First time I have attempted this one...all large circles in a line - to match the fabrics a bit.
More lines - and I may put some circles in the centre of this one too.
The small border i really loved doing -
If I have time I will undo this border and do it again.... its a bit too shakey for my liking... and I think I need to fill in some of the space with some thing like feathers of leaves...like I have done the small border. I just don't feel it goes. My DH thinks I am mad !! :)
The larger border of the 'circles' this was the first I did and was a bit of a challenge.
So there it is at the present.
11.30pm and I am off to sleep as I can get onto it again in the morning.
I guess the feathers will take me some time, and I also have to decide which thread I will use.
Also think I will use a different colour on the backing.
The backing is pieces of fabric I had, as I couldn't find any big enough for the whole quilt!
I will show it again when I finish... maybe before I do the binding .. or after if time permits!
