I don’t know how many of you have forgotten my Red and Green Applique quilt top that I started making about 2 years ago? I finished the blocks and put the top together last year but I never decided on an applique border. Finally – I made my decision.
When I finish Joseph’s Coat and have it ready to start to quilt I will need to get busy and find another hand project to work on. I must finish this top and that will be the next to work on.
A close up
I was going to make something that was kind of half way between fancy and simple but it had a lot of small pieces in it. I decided because a lot of the pieces in these blocks are actually large that something with bigger pieces would be appropriate. This quilt is more of a “folk art” type of quilt and simple and big will work.
This is the border I picked – image reds and greens – a little of pinks and yellows as they are used in the blocks. I few more flowers along the edges than what they show in the photo. Always hard to judge from seeing a totally different kind of quilt with a border but trust me – this is going to work out!
I think applique on this quilt will keep me busy for quite a few months this summer!
