isn't it amazing how the larger border has changed the appearance of the quilt centre, (if it appears a bit lopsided, it is because I haven't got it lined up straight on the design wall). I forgot to mention in my previous post that I am hand piecing this quilt - including the borders. It took me about 30 minutes (a little less for the inner borders) to stitch each border on.
The next pieced border won't be as quick as the last two as fabrics still need to be selected, 64 squares and 128 triangles must be cut out (and marked) and only then can I start piecing them together. The piecing never seems to take as long as the cutting out and marking of the pieces, probably because it is a more enjoyable part of the process.
