I wanted to use what I had of my cool floral fabric (“gracie girl” from Riley Blake), so I decided to incorporate it into this border. It was quite dicey getting the blocks to fit since I placed them on point (thus the seam ripper…)
I have really loved making this quilt, as well as the Marcelle Medallion. If you haven’t done a medallion, I really recommend it! It is so much fun to treat each border like a brand new project (without the UFO pile growing like crazy).
I am planning to wait to trim all those little tails from my zig-zags around the edge until I have the quilt basted, hoping to avoid any stretching of the bias edges.
If you are sewing along, even if you just started or haven’t finished your top, link up and show off what you have so far.
