Applique Border – Yikes!

What was I thinking? The best border, that’s what! This border is for my Lollipop Tree appliqued quilt which is complete except for the borders. I wasn’t fond of the pattern border, so I chose to do a circle on top of a circle, appliqued to a strip. First, a perfect circle is basted and pressed, then appliqued onto the white speckled preformed circle. Then each set is appliqued onto the border strip.

Note: the while line is chalk and will wipe off.

This is one of the horizontal borders all pinned and ready to go. It’s a commitment for sure, but it’s exactly what I wanted. And hey, I’d come this far with the whole project, what’s a little more extreme crazy?!

It will be a while before this project is complete. I remind myself that it will be well worth the effort, time and wait!
