Hurrah! I don't think I've given enough credit to simple borders like this. They really do give a clean, satisfying finish.
Looking back at my explanation of the border three years ago, it is easy to see, with hindsight, that I was trying too hard. Square peg, round hole, etc. But don't worry, I have another use for those seminole borders!
Also looking back, I noticed that I didn't give many close ups of the blocks. I'm quite fond of Hen-rietta there at the top of the page, but I think this big guy is my favourite:
He barely fits in the 6" block. There's also a happy couple:
And a few eggs, of course:
The new border has some chicken wire, and chicks on the loose:
The blue hen is the state bird of Delaware, apparently. If you were wondering!
Those peeping chicks in the border must have escaped through this hole:
So, it feels really good to get that one moved off the shelf, and onto the quilting pile. I still would like to clean out a few more, but I'll have to see how that goes. Plenty to do!
