Poppy Applique Quilt Border

Posted by PicasaI've basted the swag border onto the medallion center of my Mountain Mist Poppy Applique quilt.The original design called for two swag borders: I've eliminated the swag that butted right up against the applique flowers leaving lots of room for quilted feathers! I'm really starting to like the way this is looking!! Now to begin hand appliqueing the border-it shouldn't take too long...nice easy swags! :)

I'm posting this using my new netbook...oooh, I really like it-I'm calling it Baby! Its great for visiting everyone's blog-I don't have to worry about computer time (especially with the Phillies in the play-offs and DH following his favorite team through MLB.com) but I'm still working out the kinks for posting. I've also just started using Picasa and I'm still getting the hang of it, so one picture for this post (ha,ha!) is all my nerves could take! I don't know why it starts writing in the middle of the line...that is kind of weird...anyone out there with suggestions and helpful hints?...Help, please!

I'm having a great time looking at the over 400 quilts in the Bloggers Quilt Festival so if you haven't stopped by yet, do!
