I got all nostalgic and soppy doing this quilt ... whenever I see Rebecca's online name "One Wee Bird" I just want to hug her (wierdo moment). She may be a Wee Bird, but I reckon she could hold her own and I also reckon that wherever she flew in the world there would be a gaggle of geese or birds or potty-mouthed Sheila's ready and willing to pop a bottle of bubbles on her arrival and have a good ol' laugh ... so that was my inspiration for creating this compass type border.
|I chose a mix of LV and plain fabrics to offset the aquas and greens|
A simple layout of paper pieced letters for North, South, East, West (Never, Eat, Soggy Weetbix) ...
|I used Just My Type Pattern by Quietplay to create the letters|
|I added some of my favourite bird fabric from Lush Uptown to the mix|
... and diamonds as cornerstones ... a girl can never have too many diamonds!
As you can see, I reintroduced aquas and greens to the quilt ... and also added a flare of red and orange to the border for a bit of added interest.
|On a Wall ...|
|On the Deck ...|
|Hubby Holding it Up ...|
|Delicately draped on the pool fence for an arty-farty pic ...|
I give up photographing this border ... I hope you get the gist of the softness and story behind my efforts.
Rebecca's quilt is now in the very capable hands of Carla to work her Possum Magic :)
