Grace Hopper, the photo-bombing cat, had just jumped in my chair to prevent me from sitting until I took care of something for her. I think she found the little dot of light my camera produced more interesting than the quilt I was trying to photograph.
Look closely and you can see the paper sketch in the upper right corner.
After seeing a product placement post on someone's blog for triangles on a roll, I immediately had two thoughts:
- It would be a great way to make the spiky border I envisioned.
- The commercial product would most likely not be available in the size I needed, nor would I be likely to find it in Santa Fe.
So, I drew my own, perfectly proportioned for my quilt ... now all I have to do is print a bunch of foundations, glue-stick them together to create segments for each side and get busy paper piecing the border.
I don't know if this will be finished in time to be officially counted as a Lovely Finish this month, but I'm happy enough with the progress, that, either way, it will truly be lovely to me.
