Border Beauties 51, 52 from Virtual Quilter

I like the first … the distortion of using block designs in odd shaped spaces in borders makes for very interesting borders.

I like the borders in the second design too, but was intrigued with the result of using a square applique block in the sashing, and exactly the same block in the sashing squares, but with different colouring.

Oh, so sweet!

This project file is pretty much all so sweet … a combination of dainty block designs and pretty colours.

I am slowly retiring project files, and this is one making it’s farewell appearance today.

I am well on the way to sorting blocks designs, which has included a lot of redrawing blocks, and will start using the new blocks, and associated quilting motifs, in new projects in the hopefully not too distant future. Will have to keep this selection of fabrics in mind for one of the new projects.

I love it. In fact, I LOVE IT!

And this one! Three out of three ain’t bad.
