Well, this week I started adding the little flowers between the swags on the border of Baltimore Garden. I made such progress last week stitching the swags in place for all four borders. Now, working on these flowers I seem to be back to a snail's pace. I try to remember that even the flowers in the garden take time to grow and bloom. The swags on their own are quite boring!
But a few little flowers between the swags and soon things are looking better. I have been prepping the pieces for each flower as I go, but I am wondering if it would be better if I prepped all of the flowers or at least enough to do one border? Last night, I didn't have anything prepped so no stitching got done. What are your thoughts?
I do love how they really make the border so much more interesting! There are forty flowers to be done and of course the corners won't be finished until the top gets assembled. I feel like I have really come along way on this quilt, but there is a still a long way to go. So, I might as well spend time doing the prep work which is very much like preparing the soil in my garden, not fun but a very important step. Then it is just a matter of enjoying the applique process until they all get completed!
