Wouldn't it be fun to live in
a cottage covered in vines.
This poor place looks like it might have been a victim
of too many vines.
Vines can be an interesting vertical design element in a garden
even add vertical interest to quilt borders.
I've been continuing to work on the quilt
The outside borders are appliqued vines that
surround the center appliques and pieced blocks.
The bias tape maker is my "go to" tool
for making bias stems.
The Roxanne's Glue Baste narrow tip
works perfectly adhering those narrow strips
to the background fabric.
These vines have just a gentle curve.
When a pattern is primitive style,
the leaf placement can be left up to the quilter
to see what looks best.
Balancing the colors of leaves is also
the simple leave designs are fun and easy
Appliqueing a couple leaves a day is all it took
and the first border is already complete.
I've just had to imagine sitting in my vine covered cottage,
with a warm fire,
a glass of something good to sip, and
stitching on my vine border.Until Next Time-
