Secret Garden: Part 11

It's December 1st and that means it's time for Part 11 of my Mystery BOM, Secret Garden.
There are 12 parts to this BOM and every single installment matters. So although this quilt isn't much of a mystery anymore, I'm fairly sure this border will take some of your by surprise. 

This month it's time to gather together your gorgeous fabrics scraps and create an entwining border that will pull together the shades and tones used throughout your centre. That's how I've made mine - it's a medley of mixed fabrics I've used throughout and it looks really effective. 
Of course, in saying that - I'm sure there will be some of you who opt for a striking contrast border instead of my suggestion - and that's half the fun - seeing what the rest of you get up to and how you interpret my design. I know you're all extra eager to get your quilt top done before Christmas, so I'll be releasing Part 12 early, in a week or so instead of making you wait out the month. 

I can't wait to show you my top.. very soon!


  1. You do make it look so easy Esther LOL Your work is so precise just amazing. Love those smooth smooth edges and the crispness to them. Your back ground soft green is to die for.
    Cheers Glenda

  2. It is beyond gorgeous! I bought the pattern but have not started it yet. I want to finish Diamond Hill first. I have three more border pieces to applique'. It is the turning under part I don't love. The hand stitching is wonderful.

    Thanks for a gorgeous sneak peek.
