More work was done on the wool applique border for the Postage Stamp quilt. I was going to do a bird and butterfly next but I decided to do a flower cluster instead so I would see how much room was available for the critters. I need to do the two flowers on the right and embellish the last leaf in the right corner. I was busy working on it last night while Melanie was here eating pizza with us and then a long session of the Walking Dead – I think we are on season 5 about half way through it.
I showed the pieces of the half inch hexagon last post so I thought I would stitch a sample flower to pin to my border for Williamsburg Beauty to see how I liked the size – it will work out fine – now to make about 40 in the colors of the quilt!
I will add one more almost solid border and then the chain of hexagon flowers will go through the middle of it. I think this size will work out well. It finishes at about 2.5 inches.
