In between other chores today I've been trying out different ideas for the border of the applique quilt. I want to make a small vine border, and then use some pink fabric as the outer border. I made a mockup in EQ7, which also let me calculate yardage amounts;
I'm doing this little border mainly because I have two other UFOs that need applique borders, and I want to have a practice with something simple before I tackle anything more complex. I'm getting very impatient to see this finished, because I will be able to take two things off the UFO list, and I will finally have an applique quilt top to my credit.
Arrgghh! Now I like the leaves the way I had them the first time!! Good thing I have plenty of time to decide which way to place them, I have to get all the vines appliqued first. It will be quite a while before I start on the leaves.
