|CHUBBY CHICKS IS FINALLY A FLIMSY!!|
I changed how I was going to lay out this quilt, therefore the number of chicks facing each way was out by a couple of left and right facing birds so I just mixed it up a little. The original pattern has a flying geese border in between the white and green borders but I just wanted to get this one finished and I had plenty of the green so I "grew" that border out to 5".
Now I will have to go fabric shopping for a backing.... oh what a chore :-))
My method for adding borders is a mixture of techniques. I use my wonderful book "Borders and Bindings" by Mimi Dietrich and the technique used by Bonnie Hunter here. I never have any troubles with my borders by following the techniques given by Mimi and Bonnie. The only thing I could have done differently with this quilt is to join the green borders on the straight, not on the diagonal. They look quite noticeable in the photo, but once the wadding and backing is on and then the quilting done, I don't think they will stand out so much.
The other project I am working on right now is the Owl embroidery blocks...
