While I am stitching down the 3rd border for Handful of Scraps I decided to lay it on the floor and play with border ideas a little bit – this is just playing for now – I have not decided what I am doing at this point. I might do something totally different – maybe a straight chain 3 rows wide. I have some thinking to do on this while I finish up stitching the center down to the background and I need to straighten out the miter corners a little bit also – I can see that I do not have them tight enough with the fabric being so wavy in the middle right now with the wrinkles all over the place – I will press the pieces with starch and then get it laying out on the table better before the final stitching of the mitered corners take place. – they are basted right now just so they are not flapping all over the place right now while I work, I did cut some of the excess fabric off also.
Another angle – I know it is not uniform right now – I was just playing – I could make them two rows wide instead of a single wavy chain.
Or little hexies scattered around – could make each hexie one color with a different center or mixed up playful like this. If you have any ideas with links to a border that you have seen that you think would be great let me know – I won’t be doing a final layout for awhile, I’m sure after I get the borders all attached I will be ready for a break once again.

The baskets that I prepped are finished and added to the stack – 21 out of 300! a long way to go.
