    I spent this weekend getting the borders on and I am so happy with it!! I plan on doing cross hatching in the center applique and I got a stencil and ruler for the long arm for it. Haven't decided on anything else for the quilting yet.

    LOL!! It does look like grandma's linens. That's what I had in mind when I saw the fabric and the colors.

    I can only repeat what everyone else has said -- it's beautiful!
    And I'd like to know how you put the red fabric border on after the scallops? I've never done that.

    Thanks all. It is bright and cheerful and makes me smile.

    The scallop border is in the design of the border fabric, not cut or pieced.

    Gorgeous! Question: When you do cross-hatching in the center with the applique, how do you skip over the applique pieces? Do you do a couple of teeny stitches then raise the needle and move the needle to the other side of the applique piece? I ask because I recently did some quilting with applique pieces on the quilt, and kept forgetting to skip the applique piece and had to go back and frog it. Thanks!
