I was so close that I had to keep sewing. And it is only 11:30 pm.
I did daisies and echoed around them plus some meandering in the center. (The daisies actually showed better in a previous post, here. )After doing the string of circles for one border, I decided I didn’t want to do it all the way on the others. I’d seen lines with occasional circles and thought that fewer circles echoed the fewer blocks.
Here you can see my two-borders-in-one design. I echo loops in the borders of four squares and of 2 squares (someday the sun will shine and I might get a photo that shows that) and the circles echo the other three green border circles.
And I think these are the best corners I’ve ever done after learning a trick from Wendy Butler Burns on Craftsy. And I’d never pressed my binding before–that too probably helped.
It seemed to me that with all the brightness going on in the quilt, a subdued binding was called for; hence the dark brown binding. I think it works.
