Playing around with borders

While working away on my Ozard Cobble Stone project (only 4 more rows to be sewn together), the time has come to think about borders for this top.

So, here we go ....

Wanting to do something different with the borders, my EQ7 software came to the rescue.  I found this pattern for the borders and kept playing around with it.

I decided to work with just 3 pieces of the pattern and am happy with the look.  Finding the poison green for the border was my lucky day.  Should have bought more!  Darn!
After adding some more of the pieces to the border, oh yes, I love this.
But wait ... what about adding some circles in the space between each group?  Oh YES ... THIS WORKS!
 
Guess what I will be doing for the next month or so!  :o)

Have a great day!

That is going to be an awesome border treatment!! I love applique on borders and so glad that is what you decided. I know it is extra work but so worth it.
Now about that step ladder, I don`t think people realize how tall you are and how big that quilt is!!

Did you bring the step ladder in to the fabric shop to match the colour? The border will be great when you're all finished.
