St Germain quilt - the next step
It has been a cold Sunday, although the sun did come out just briefly. It also tried to snow, but it not come to anything.
I am now starting to applique the outer borders. They are rich in leaves and flowers.
The instructions say - cut three hundred and fifty six leaves and one hundred and ten circles!
These numbers are just too daunting, I think I'll will cut them as I'll go, it will be easier that way.
The two longer sides are over 1.8 m long and shorter just over 1 m.
The bias strips for stems are 1/4 in wide.
This is going to be a long journey.............
