I’ve decided pieced borders are not really my thing. I would skip this one entirely, but the Great Granny Squared quilt looks so nice with the pieced border in the photo from the pattern that I don’t want to leave it off.
My issue with pieced borders is that it feels almost like making another entire quilt – after the quilt top is already done. The rest of the blocks came together quickly and now I toil away on blocks for the border, 27 of 62 complete….
On another note, two days after the picture of the Forget-Me-Nots from last time, the owners of that yard mowed their grass and the flowers were gone. It’s a sea of wild phlox along the trail now.
And a few poppies gone wild as well…
With any luck, a completed quilt top by this time next week!
