A couple of weeks ago I started working on a quilt that I designed more than a year ago. The piece is a bit of a study in merging a number of techniques.
So far I have employed three of the five different techniques that will be used in the top: liquid starch and freezer paper applique, and paper piecing.
Even though I color coded the paper template the seam ripper was my best friend with the moon block… piecing the block was challenging but I really like the way it turned out.
I really dislike raw edge applique, so I used the liquid starch method and a clear plastic template to create the dancer for the quilt. She will be one of the last items placed on the top. The background will have to be completed before the best place for her can be determined.
Does anyone have ideas on what type of border the piece should be finished with? I have drawn and erased borders many times, but have not settled on a finish yet. I would love some input.
