    I haven't worked on this in awhile because I couldn't decide on a border though still working on the applique. Most of it's done except for the leaves and one large flower. I need to re-work the top center area as it looks a little odd, something needs to be there.

    Luckily I was able to find more fabric in the yellow and the darkest blue, I still have a lot of the white. I'm going to try and do a stacked border on this one. I really dislike doing borders so if I can just do each side once that would be ideal.

    The border seems very satisfying to me, Pam, with your center.

    (but, it's going to be a lot of work......I think it will be worth it! :thumbup:

    Stunning-WOW love your work and your idea to finish it. Do you use EQ for designing?

    Thanks :-) Yes, I use EQ6. Instead of doing blocks like how the software does it for the border I'm going to try doing strips. The squares are 2", the white strip is 1/2", the yellow strip is 2". The hard part will be the diamonds and really not sure how I'm going to do that other than individual flying geese.

    Thank you all. I have the rest of the fabric in the washer so just maybe I can put a dent in getting it finished this weekend.

    No, it's not paper pieced. I used the Marti Michell giant dahlia templates. It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be and is one that I will make again.

    Well, you notice I said "settled" on a border. I didn't have any inspiration on that border, I just used one from EQ6. I am having such a hard time on this one.

    Last night I started to sew the strips and cut the 2" squares from strips. I cut one sewn section and was playing around with the pieces on my table and they wanted to do this. :P

    I sewed one together with the background fabric of the quilt and it tells me that this is The One.
