Now for the border

I finished hand quilting the center and now I am working on the border. You can see in the upper left corner that I am doing a simple line design for the border.

In order to quilt the border more easily in my hoop I am pinning a towel to the edge in order to hold it in the hoop securely .

    Just had a lightbulb moment here – pin the edges to a towel to fit it into the hoop. Brilliant; thank you for sharing that! Your work is beautiful – very inspiring.
