there is a quilting design that i've seen numerous times that i've been trying to figure out and PPP so i can quilt it too. it's a great 3" wide or smaller border/sashing idea.
well *happy dance*, i FINALLY figured it out. YEAH! see the problem i was having is i make my feathers 'from the bottom up' and in this design you have to do the feather from top down. i'm currently using this on a quilt that's in the frame now- you can't see it (on purpose) and now i'm wishing you could see it. it's pretty quilted! i can't wait to do this in a double border and mirror image it. the secondary pattern will rock!
moral- sometimes YOU have to change to make things work out.
(all i needed to know about life i learned from quilting :) )
