Another border

is in the planning stage, I think this border will take a little while before it is completed.   I have seen a chain border on a couple of applique quilts and thought it would work here. There is a lot of preparation to be done before I can start stitching, and it doesn't help when the template is reversed, luckily I only did it the one time :)


Sorry about the wonky photo, I just threw everything up on the design wall and didn't check to see if it was straight or not.  You can get the general idea of this border, I will need to do a fair amount of tweaking to get the chain links all positioned evenly.  The border has been cut a little wider so that I can trim it back to the correct size once all the applique is done.  I also need to think about what is going to happen in the corners, ideally I would like to continue the chain so I'm thinking a loop of some sort will do the trick, but I'll work that out once I have all the elements in place.
