I don’t think I’m the only quilter that somehow comes up with great ideas while sleeping! I have been struggling with that border on the Jacqueline’s Album quilt…its not hard, but to me its boring and not very satisfying, lol. I keep thinking that even if I got through that first border, there are three more!!!
I didn’t want to do a plain fabric border, and have been thinking about a pieced border, when last night I remembered swags! What a great solution! So at 3 in the morning I was busy looking through my applique books, drawing the quilt centre size on EQ and coming up with a swag template…I even found a good red in my stash. Here it is back basted (by machine), I’ll be adding flowers or leaves between the swags.
