LE - Stitching Part 8

This past week, I finished appliqueing the "pixies" or triangles with feet (whatever you want to call them) and have made and glue basted the zigzag appliques on the upper and lower borders. A few hours of stitching is ahead of me before I start the applique motifs which appear in the middle of the borders.

The thought has occurred to me there are more applique pieces in the borders than in the vases!

I'm also trying out border fabrics. I'm not convinced it will be gold but that's the best choice so far. When I finish the part 8 & 9 borders, I believe a trip to the fabric stores will be necessary!

Stitching,
Mayleen

  4. Hi Mayleen, yes aren't the borders hard to choose fabric for? I wrestled with that for WEEKS! Your LE is looking stunning, it's a real beauty and I can see how much work and dedication you've committed so far. How beautiful :)

  7. Mayleen your quilt is stunning, I love the colours you have used and your wee Dutch fairies as I call them look so so cute. I have done prep work for some of the borders to come but still have my 4th vase to make on the centre, for some reason I keep stalling over it???? Cheers Glenda
