QUILT REPORT

I could not believe it when the pieced border actually stitched onto my "Vintage Holiday" quilt, outer edges even, the stitching relatively straight. In all reverence, I could have climbed onto the housetop and shouted, "There is a God!" Frankly, I don't know how it happened. I think the bias element of the triangular shapes must have allowed the alignment.

Since taking this picture, I have attached the upper and lower borders as well.

The next step is another narrow border strip. Then what? Well, I'm thinking about some embroidery embellishment before beginning the quilting process. That one block on top seems to stand out for its blankness. KW

Looks great! I like the idea about embellishment for the one block.

You go girl!

Looks great! I think that block needs something too, however.

Oh, it's looking so great! Your borders are perfect and putting a design in the "empty" block sounds like a good idea. You'll have endless possibilities. :-)

Well, I have narrowed the embroidery options some. The colors of the panel blocks are red and green with just a touch of black and gold, so I don't think I should deviate from that. And we have the vintage look, so I want a design in keeping with that. Then the question is: do I limit myself to designs on hand or do I search for new designs. Hmmmmm.

Ahh, the thrill of the chase. (Or is it the curse of decision making?) Either way, I know you'll find the perfect design--and there's no hurry. :-)
