    I had some left over pieces from a quilt I'd finished awhile back.
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-24785-1.htm
    Decided to put the scraps together and then experiment with some ideas I'd been thinking about.
    Well, the ideas didn't all work out as well as I thought they would. The little flanges in the border make for a heavy border and by pushing them this way and that makes for a 'less than straight' border.
    The little corner stones are fun but would be totally impractical if this were a quilt to be used instead of just hung on a wall. So, all and all, I wouldn't recommend doing any of this! But experiments are just that way and I did have fun trying them.

    Every once in awhile I tell myself "this is a good quilt to play with" and I give myself permission to experiment and try new quilting techniques. Often times I end up with "What was I thinking" type projects but I also find my quilting has improved because of these projects. It's all fun!

    Beautiful.... I think it is great! I have a pattern somewhere that did the same sort of thing on the border. I think I took it out of a magazine some time ago. I think you did a wonderful job.
