Community Quilt 227

7 09 2015

This was almost a whole-cloth quilt! I starting by stitching in the ditch around the lovely applique, then measured out an created a border with a quarter-inch echo around it, and another similar border further out. This framed the applique and gave me a defined area in which to quilt. I use McTavishing inside this fake border area and left the borders free of stitching.
