BOM


 I have been working on this quilt for some time, well over a year.
I  designed it using the pictures from Christmas cards, wrapping paper, stamps.................. a tea towel! 
It's my Block of the Month that has taken a long time to finish.
Why? 
Well I got it to the stage where it was all in one piece then what to do about a border?
I started a couple of applique designs. Too fussy.
Too old fashioned.


The last few days I made all these stars.
Too busy.
Too big. 
Despair!


 Then yesterday I got this idea.
So I unpicked the stars and used the "flying geese" to make this sawtooth border.
What do you think?


Too late. It's on!
