You can read more about this very special quilt for my sister in my previous post. I had originally not intended to put this up on my blog because this is so personal but it occurred to me that perhaps this may inspire others to do something similar for someone close to them who has also suffered a loss.
If you read my previous post, you know that I began using a pattern created by Molly Fryer and although I love that pattern, I really could only follow it to a certain point ( beyond her beautiful applique border I am kinda on my own) Why? Well because I am working with mostly shirts that have been cut apart and not yardage, I don't have the luxury of following this pattern exactly as it was laid out so now I am simply adding and creating borders as fabric allows. I just need to be "creative" that's all. I must say that Molly's quilt was the perfect starting point for this project.
I am pleased with the look of these wide and narrow borders that I have added.
The completion of this quilt is definitely a priority so I am off to see what I can come up with for the next border.
