border begun

Finally I got started with the applique border for my signature quilt.  Designing my own applique seems to take forever. Happily there is no rush :0)  It's only been 7+ years since the signatures were signed...
 I've also made a few more stars recently for my star-a-day project.   The tin still isn't very full yet but I think this is a good summer project and summer is coming!  I saw my first robin yesterday :0)
Happy Quilting!!

Your designed and stitched appliquéd border is wonderful. You included a great variety of shapes and sizes. It's going to look lovely on your quilt. I think you've made more stars than I have. Maybe I'll follow your lead and think if them as a summer project!

Love your start to the border - such pretty colours. The bunch of little blue flowers with yellow centres is gorgeous! This border will set the blocks off beautifully, and isn't it fun designing your own! That's quite a collection of little stars in their tin :)
