Design Wall Monday 4/6/15
Yesterday I finished adding the border to my 16-Patch Stars quilt top. I even mitered the corners on the border, something I rarely bother to do. They all turned out pretty well. Instead of the usual badly-lit photo on my design wall, I decided to try for an outdoor shot. The problem with that idea is that right now in Georgia, every outdoor surface is covered with a layer of yellowish-green pollen dust. There was no way this quilt top with so much white background was going to be laid down anywhere outside. Special thanks to my lovely assistant for holding the quilt top.
Once I prepare a back for this and make a pillowcase and label to go with it, I will be submitting this to be quilted for Quilts of Valor.
