In the meantime I pulled out this old UFO, it's been rolled up and put away at the back of the cupboard for years...I must wave to dear long time quilting friend Dana (no blog), I know she loves this and reads my blog....I'm going to finish it Dana, at last! I'm having trouble deciding what to do about the borders...
It measures 36" x 18" I would like to make it a bit bigger so that it's a nice wall hanging...it would look lovely above our bed.
Should I just add a rose fabric border, or do some blocks then a rose fabric border....what blocks would go with this beautiful swag !
Here's a close up... I needle turned the roses, leaves and bows, the pansies are broderie perse, with bullion stitch embroidered lavender sprigs....the background is cross hatch quilted with a twin needle.
I really love this pink and green rose fabric and I think it compliments and brings out the colours of the flowers...Hmmm, what to do!..♥ A finish for February....I have a pair, these will keep my little tootsies warm in winter...
A lovely mild cooler day today....I'm off to my local Tuesday Patchwork group today..
Have a lovely day....♥
