Stitchin' Sisters RR Update ~ My Border of Gina's Medallion




I have this border done and ready to mail!








I cut some dresden fan blades with my Easy Dresden Ruler


These fans are all pieced.
I drew and cut the inner and outer setting templates by hand.

The Stitchin' Sister who added the previous border enclosed some extra fabric from her border and I used this dark blue batik to transition for her border to mine.
The outer turquoise strip is also from fabrics she enclosed.
I will be sending along the scraps from my batik fat quarters for others to use if they would like.


For the corners, I auditioned several ideas and finally dug this one out of a box.


A large quilt in this block has been on my Quilty-To-Do List for a long time.



It makes an 8.5 inch block and is easy curved piecing.

Here are some close-ups of my border:


I was thinking sea glass.


Beach umbrellas.


A soft swish of the sea.


Toes wading in the foam.


I finished this border last night at 1:26AM

Gina, may you enjoy, my friend!

Today will be an easy quilty day.

Linking up today with


and with this new linky party:


May you have a happy day!
