|Border work for Peachy Cameo Medallion|
|Getting the borders sewn on|
|So fun looking|
So on to the next section--the top and bottom part to this round. This border in the medallion was scheduled to be a little different than expected, not just the normal four sided repeat. I drew up a mock border a couple years ago and hadn't quite found a use for it yet. Why not slide it into this quilt? It's very similar to the Benjamin Biggs quilt Lori finished up earlier this year and I think the light, airy look will be a good contrast for the rest of the quilt.
|Prep work for the next border|
It took one whole, green fat quarter to make just 2/3's of the bias vine, so I added another slightly darker green fabric for the rest of the bias length. I get tired of always trying to be matchy matchy. Weighing back and forth, do I want to add all the darker green at the very end and totally, completely break the colors up? No, maybe not. I impulsively mixed the darker green in sporadically with the lighter color while I was sewing the bias length. If you look closely, the two colors randomly start and stop within the 18 1/2' lengths cut for the applique border--an absolutely, delightful look. Makes me so happy!
