My poor neglected Irish Chain quilt is yet again being given some much needed attention. It has become one of those projects that gets picked up for a short time and then buried in the depths of the sewing pile for a long time! I know it will be beautiful when it’s finished, it’s just getting it to that stage 😦
This week it has moved from being this
I always think that a border just changes a top into something that looks a bit more finished. The plan is to now add the final border, which I want to appliqué with flowers. I’ve designed the border which involves more appliqué than I’ve ever done before – gulp! (Although nothing on the scale of Esther Aliu’s ‘Love Entwined‘ quilt which one day I will do.)
Do you have any ‘take out, do a bit then put away’ projects lurking in your sewing baskets?
Until next time,
