One of my goals for January was to get the borders onto my Yankee Diary top BEFORE Barbara Brackman's new series, Antebellum Album, begins.
Since the style of my appliqued blocks is definitely quaint and primitive, I wanted an informal/prim border also. I think that this simple solution complements the blocks, and also contains and calms down the rather busy layout.
Moving right along: layered, basted and ready for hand quilting. The 'big stitch' quilting I have in mind should further enhance the prim style. My target for completion is the summer patriotic season.
Antebellum Album starts this Wednesday!
