Another Border or Two

Once again my slightly addictive nature has taken over...


I have done little else lately apart from tracing templates onto fabric and cutting them out...


to hand piecing the shapes together...


The squares on point border was very enjoyable.


The greeny border is an old fabric from the Lecien Old New 30's collection. It's a beautiful fabric. I managed to find some more here recently which was fabulous cause I didn't have quite enough for this quilt, that border will be repeated later.


You can find this pattern (and where to purchase) over at Judy Newman's beautiful blog A Very Fine House.
