Too much time doing book work today. Sometimes it seems so unfair that I can't quilt all the time like I really want too. lol
Flowers and Flying Geese
I've been looking at my Flowers and Flying Geese quilt lately (the quilt I started 4th of July weekend), wondering what needs to happen next. I'm a firm believer in letting a quilt talk to me and express an opinion. Does that sound alarming or what? Anyway, there was plenty of red triangles leftover so I thought it would be great if I could include them in the quilt somewhere. Turns out they make a very nice framed border for the applique piece!
Looking a little closer
I dithered about and then finally settled on just sewing them onto the rest of the quilt and then chopping off the extra. Nothing about this quilt is perfect, so why try and pretend otherwise? I'm really happy with the way it's turned out, but now I'm leaning heavily towards adding a couple more borders. Yes I do love adding those borders onto my quilts! Oh well, you've probably figured out by now that I'm not scared of those tricky Medallion quilts. They seem to work well with the way my brain is wired...
