I have finally decided to just push forward with my Jubilee Quilt and not over anyalyze this any more!! I am so crazy about this quilt and I think that's one reason it has been so hard for me concerning the borders - I've wanted it to be perfect. After spending so many hours trying to think of different things for the border, I'm ready to be done!
Deciding to use an element from the central flower was the start. I drafted a single bud and then struggled with the size and shape of the leaves. In the end, it will be what it will be. I think I will add 2 circles at the bottoms of the arcs - see second flower from left on the top border. The border still looks like it's lacking something and I think the little berries will help. I've still got so much to do - including the center motif. Still working on that one.... It just feels good to be doing something!
I worked a full day yesterday - first time since my shingles diagnosis. When I got home I was met with this :). My DH is out of town and he ordered an early Valentine's present. I will also be out of town for my birthday in a few weeks, and so he wanted to surprise me! Thank you honey :).
He doesn't do this often, so it was so special. Purple and green, can't go wrong there. Hope your day is going well,
