Corner design

Finally I figured out what to do with the corners of my Camelot quilt top.
When I was a member of the IQI  Guild in Chicago I had a workshop about designing borders. The most important thing I remember is to make a connection between the middle of the quilt and the border.
So I came up with this idea.

 Yes, the corners will be round, like the circles of the Camelot blocks. I traced the design once on pattern paper and then put 4 layers under my sewing machine (big stitch, no thread) and copied the pattern 4 times! Easy! Now I can paperpiece the 4 corners.
 The back of the 4 sheets of paper still together.
Yeah, I am ready to sew the last bit of this top!!

Happy sewing,

  1. Good idea! And I say it again; I can't wait to see the whole quilt top together. Have you had any thoughts on how you are going to quilt it?
