Smithsonian, had the appliqued border going right around. I decided that I would do it in strips, and add it to the quilt like a log cabin piece, wrapped around. I saw this done on other antique quilts and thought it looked pretty good. Also, it eliminated all the fiddling with getting things to go around the corner properly.
Well, here it is, all assembled. I am reasonably happy with it, but now I am trying to work out how I can unpick those bits of the border to make them flow around the corner. Perhaps I should be happy with the tag "inspired by" rather than the "copied" label. What do others think?
Cut away the "burst" as well
