how is your medallion coming??
ready for another round of borders?
so as we begin….
I finally finished my first and second borders during the catch up week!
while doing these borders, I discovered a few tips I thought I would share….
use a bit of spray like flatter by soak or Mary Ellen’s best press
measure, measure…I usually don’t but for this project I have found it invaluable!!
border 3 is a simple strip…
so glad after all those triangles!!
border and posts are cut 1.75 inches
after a bit of debate….
here is my border all sewn on!
for border 4, I am planning on using these fabrics…
this next border is flying geese…
I am planning on doing magic corners on a rectangle…
I know Sally using a different method…
click here for the tutorial….
we also talked size…the book calls for them to be 2 x 3.75
but since I did a different triangle method, and I am a bit tired of small pieces!!
I am going to make mine 2×4 finished…I will probably need a coping strip, but I am okay with that….
to see more pictures on this project, be sure to join the open facebook group!
and here is the giveaway for this week!
heads up – I will draw a winner on Thursday morning!
I have a fun post for Friday you don’t want to miss!!!
