HOYH: Rose Border Progress

I am so in love with all the roses in Hold Onto Your Heart.
Here are some details from my leaves. This quilt is so intense that I decided to add every kind of flourish I could think of - it just feels right to lavish every last detail with lots of love. I don't know if I have another Hold Onto Your Heart in me, so this one has to be perfect down to every last stitch!
 Of course you don't need to get carried away like me, but sometimes I can't stop myself.
Now for some really interesting progress: the floral border. I just adore every inch of this border and seeing it come together has been really rewarding.
I'm working at my own pace, you can't rush a border like this.
Something that's really surprised me is how much I love my fabric choices - normally I umm and ahh and change my mind half way through a quilt - but not this time. It all feels so right and the longer I work with it, the more it grows on me.
And not forgetting all those rosebuds! Phew there's lots of them.
 I think they're gorgeous!
 I love seeing this border come to life and can't wait to show you my finished masterpiece!

  1. Dear Esther,

    It is absolutely stunning! The little details, your colour choices compliment each other so beautifully. It is good to see how our applique keeps us inspired to work on projects, no matter how long it takes or how complicated the design.

  2. Until I read this post, I hadn't realised you had been away so long. Welcome back, and thanks for sharing your current wonderful project.

  3. It's so lovely to have you back Esther and I hope that this means your DD is improving in her health. You have been in our thoughts and prayers.
    Your border is absolutely beautiful as is all your work. Mine is progressing slowly but I am not concerned as I love every minute of working on it.

  4. Welcome back Esther. You were missed. I am looking forward to your masterpiece :-)
