Wedding bento: Ready for quilting



Mitred borders are so nice looking. They take a lot longer, but I think it's definitely worth it. This is the first, thin border.



This is the much wider border made with the inspiration fabric. Naturally, I had to end up piecing these borders, but I did try to match the design so the join wouldn't be visually jarring.



Here's a little peak at the corner. I delivered the quilt and back to Ye Olde Forest Quilters after school. Coming up: a look at the One Million Books quilt as the bias binding goes on it.

Thanks, Minka. I have quite a collection of them at this point.
All the best,

What an accomplishment Dana! I can't wait to see it quilted.

Dana W. Fisher said...

You and me both, Mary! The quilting is going to be a leaf pattern. I made the bias binding for it today.
Warm regards,
Dana

It's a beautiful quilt, and those borders add something special to it. I'm eager to see what it looks like once quilted!

Me, too! Thanks, Cat.
All the best,
