I've now been quilting for three and a half years. This blog is my personal quilting diary, that charts my progress (and occasional regression) from the start. I use it so I can look back at my past projects...and hopefully see my skills improve!

Top and Bottom Borders Finished

I have now finished the top and bottom borders of the quilt.  I decided to hand piece them to the quilt after I happened across a video of Jinny Beyer hand piecing.  I'm really pleased I had a go.  It was very easy to do and I didn't catch the points on the previous border in the seam allowance.

I've made a decent start on the side borders.  I managed to get three hexie flowers completed and attached to the border at my patchwork group meeting this morning.  Happy days!


  1. Your border is looking wonderful. I am just starting Part 3, using my own fabric choices. Such a fun quilt. Keep up the good work!

  2. Thank you, Heather! I hope you enjoy Part 3. I am loving every minute of this quilt! In some respects, I wish I'd chosen my own fabrics...to make the quilt more my own, but I'm so new to quilting and applique, I just don't have the confidence yet!
