I just used solid Kona white. I thought it would keep a vintage feel that way. I meandered the center panel and outlined around the scallop design, did 1" grid lines on the setting triangles marking it with my hema marker and my ruler, stitched in the ditch around the red polka dot borders and outlined the 4 patches. Then I decided they were too puffy that way and needed to be stitched down each one so I stitched around the 4 patches again going down the centers each direction. This outside design on the outter border....I don't know what that is. Kind of a feather/half heart. The border is so busy, you can't see it from the front and I thought it would be a good project to practice that shape. I'll wash the quilt tomorrow. i'm a little worried about that red rick-rack. It sure did frey when I trimmed it so it didn't show through the front.
Now where did I put those Christmas ornaments that I never finished last year????
