Di Ford Mystery Quilt


I am so excited to have all the borderie perse stitched on this quilt.  I don’t know if it was this particular fabric or just me but it seemed rather difficult to work with.  It wasn’t like regular chintz but more loosely woven so I had trouble with it raveling.  I was fortunate to have more of the fabric than the people doing the BOM so I was able to have more flowers to choose from and could redo if things went too terribly wrong.


Here she is completed through border number four.


These are the bits for border number five.  Stitching left to do.
From what I have gleaned from the internet the last border, number six is full of English paper pieced stars.
Oh my,  not looking forward to that.

  4. Your quilt looks marvelous. It has been a challenge but you're doing fabulous. I haven't done border 5 yet. I've heard the next one is going to keep us busy for awhile. But it will be an awesome quilt when it's done.

  7. I have seen several blogs where they are working on this quilt. You have done so well with the design. I would not be looking forward to paper piecing either.
