This is what I decided on for the border. I wanted to keep it simple to go along with the style of the quilt.
It will finish about a twin size I think. I should be able to finish this top tomorrow and possibly even quilt it as well... Hmmm.
But I also have another finish I'm pretty happy about!
MY NAME GAME SWAP MINI!
It should arrive in El Paso to it's owner today so I can show you what it looks like finally!!
My partner is Irene from Hilachas. Hilachas is Spanish for the loose threads all over the floor in your sewing room. I wish we had an English word for those!
To ties in the loose threads I cut up pieces of red pearl cotton and FMQ'ed them down into the center of the dresdens to give texture and truly tie the meaning of her name into the piece.
I hand quilted the echo from the dresden plate.
Here's the whole thing:
I'm very happy with how it turned out, I was a little worried at first because her style was much more traditional than mine but I think I was able to combine both our styles with a nice result!
