I've unpicked the border, remade the cornerstones and sliced up one of my most treasured fat quarters ever, Heather Ross' Swimming Sisters in blush, and here is the result!
I'm so much happier with this :) I think it's light, fresh, airy and hopefully still beachy, but as the wise Catrin suggested, more tropical beach than British ;)
What do you think? Better?
Didn't see the original until now but I'd say much better! The border doesn't fight for attention with your beautifully pieced centre now!ReplyDelete
Wow! It is perfect!ReplyDelete
This is gorgeous! Lovely big panels for those ladies to swim in and show off their tail and tresses to full effect! Now I notice more about your centre star too - those little octopus are so sweet!ReplyDelete
I don't know about wise! I actually thought that the original border looked ok (it was more the cornerstones that looked wrong to me) but now that I've seen this I'm in love - your star really shines now xReplyDelete
This is BEAUTIFUL Fiona!!! I think MUCH better:) I love the fabrics so much...and your piecing is PERFECT!!! You couldn't have made a better decision with these borders:) A winning block for sure!ReplyDelete

Was poking around on pinterest, as you do, and spotted a modern christmas table runner I really liked, and recognised your name. Time to do some housework!!!
