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
