Hope: Working on the Border Blocks

I must have a short memory. The last time I worked with linen I had to work extra carefully to stop stretching and warping of the fabric fibres.. and totally forgot about all the hassle. Well, now I'm repeating myself! I love my Hope background in this rough linen but am having to work with extra diligence to make sure my seams and fibres stay nice and straight. I do this with spray starch and double checking every single piece before and after I sew it in. Phew.
With the strips sewn in and correct (yes, even I have to double check everything against the pattern sheet), it's time to create the beautiful vines.
I'm using my trusty turn edge applique technique with Elmer's glue for this.
Next, it's time to create the flower heads
it doesn't matter how many I make, I never get tired of applique flowers.
Aren't they sweet?
And this is my border block, waiting to be sewn in
Hope is a gorgeous blooming applique design, perfect for beginners. You can start this quilt anytime as a BOM or purchase the pattern outright. Simply click the image to learn more.
