While in a stupor yesterday and doing some quilting while watching some Masterpiece Theater, I was thinking more about how I wanted to do the border of the 30's sampler
Like I mentioned yesterday I have been basically quilting a quarter inch outline stitch, or in the ditch
and sometime just a barely outline stitch around the applique.
Thinking about the border which is not that wide, it's a 5" border that is basically a straight design. I have rectangle patches of the print fabric with a strip of the background fabric on each side.
So I was considering....
OK if I'm just going to go with what I've done with the rest of the quilt and do an outline stitch but do I do it only on the border fabric....
or do I do it on the printed fabric.
And I have even considered doing it on both but in reality it's not needed to keep the batting secure and that would be more for an aesthetic look.
Then I thought OK how much more time do I want to spend on this one.
If I just do an outline stitch on either just the print or just the background, I would be done sooner than if I was to do both.
Thinking some more about the design and what I wanted to do on the border, I don't think I want anything with curves. I don't have that design in the quilt and I just don't feel it would serve any purpose to change it on the border.
