The Little Log Cabin Trees quilt now has two borders and is all layered up ready for quilting.
It was quite difficult to decide which border fabric to use. I had run out of the white on white background fabric and any other white fabric I put next to it just made it look too cream in colour. I knew I wanted a really skinny border made out of my scrap bag strings and then one more border.
After auditioning most of the green fabric in my stash I decided on this green spot on a white background.
I really like the skinny border, a bit fiddly to do at 1/2 inch finished width!
I decided to do mitred corners on the outer border.
This little quilt finishes at about 28 inches square and is now layered and tacked. I am quilting it in white cotton thread, outlining the trees first and then I will see how the mood takes me!
Looking betterer and betterer, Janet!
That's a lovely quilt Janet. The borders (especially the skinny one - worth the effort) set it off nicely. The white on white would have just too much but this looks just right.
