Surprise in the border and a new start ….

with the top of my Sashiko / Applique quilt done
(Sylvia Pippen design)
I struggled with what to do for the border…
really wanted something different.

decided on a Sashiko border!

 with and applique surprise every once in a while!

really like how it's turning out…


New project…

Using 2" pentagon paper piece papers
and fabrics from my stash of Bonnie and Camilla.

 This is what I've come up with so far - 
a 16" red polka dot background square,
blue/white hounds tooth fabric in the center,
sashing in a blue/grey fabric, 
cornerstones in a blue/white fabric
blue piping
and flowery border.

but it's still in the percolating stage!
