Border, that is. Got the borders SID (Stitch in the Ditch)/stabilized and decided on a design for the narrower white border. In order to stitch it, I needed to grab another handy gadget….my Handi Quilter “Versa Tool”.

IMG_4682 With a few marked dots for reference points, it was full steam ahead!!!! The results are quite acceptable…..yup, I like it.


A couple of backing views….



And this is really close to a finish………….. ummmm, need some “dreamin’ time” to figure out the outer border motif!!!!!

    is that a Hunter’s Star design with you amazing quilting?

    • treadlemusic says:

      Actually, it’s a pattern from the Missouri Star Quilt Co. and here’s the video tutorial. Really easy. I used a layer cake batik set and cut my background squares from muslin. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xXggafOP230 It’s really an easy pattern but attention must be given to the bias outer edges that result from this process. Goes together like a dream!!!!!!

        Thank you for the link. I missed that one from Jenny. I usually watch all the videos she does. The only ones I don’t watch are the ones with Rob. Although he has some great ideas I just can’t listen to him. Why did I think that was a Hunter’s Star? Must be going potty in my dotage. I have just the layer cake “1862 Battle Hymn” by Barbara Brackman. I have been sitting on this layer cake for ages and ages because I just couldn’t decide what to do with it and now I have the perfect design. Thank you so much Doreen. It will be a while before I get to it but at least I know exactly what it will be used for. 🙂

          Ummmm, agree with your “Rob” assessment. No, you don’t have a “dotage” problem!!! The reason I liked this pattern is cuz it IS reminiscent of the Hunter’s Star pattern!!!!!! (“Great minds……..” and all that!!). The next one I would like to make (yes,another of this pattern!), I’m going to use a colored solid for the background. I think it would be awesome, too!!!!!

    I always love your quilting… just love how you filled in the gaps and spaces in that quilt. I got that little tool but a bit lost what to do with it…. so pleased to see an idea on here…
