Beaded Border Strings 1 and 2

Beaded Border Strings 1

I have been digging around through old project files, deleting some, playing with some, and deciding that there are some which I am willing to share.

Instead of making quilts with the same block repeated, why not make a medallion quilt with the same border use around and around? (I did change some of the corners.)

The changes are sometimes miniscule, 

In the second one I changed a couple of the borders, but the corners didn’t match up.

I rather like the miss matched corners.

I also like that the other corners are all slightly different.

    I find the second design much more interesting, Judy.


    • Laura,

      As with every project file I start playing with, this one started out with baby steps … then grew into a rather interesting collection of designs. I just wanted to see how the corner blocks worked with the strings in the border, but then just had to try mixing them all up.

    I like them. I also like the second one more as well. I agree with the miss matched corners, it gives the quilt an entirely different look, and that bit extra!
