Another border idea

In my last post, I talked about various border ideas for my hexie quilt.  While going through some old magazines I came across this quilt in an American Patchwork and Quilting 2005 magazine.

I just love the look of this border and am thinking I could do something similar, but using my little hexie flowers.  Maybe a birdhouse in one corner and a little blue bird or two in the other corner.  I have not done anything like this before, so should be an interesting project.

In the meantime I have been working on a "secret" project and having so much fun playing with beads and beautiful wool.  I should be able to show some finished projects in a couple week or so.

Have you gotten your decorations up?  I have actually completed most of my decorating - just a few more ornaments to hang.  These are my nesting Santas - my grandchildren have more fun playing with these, for that matter, so do I.

Hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving, and happy holidays to come.

Beads and wool - oh my!

Now that's a lovely border idea. A border idea that flows with some real charm. It rests perfectly alongside your hexies I think.

Another nice alternative! You could just flip a coin and any would be great!

No decorations here. For the third consecutive year our children and grandchildren aren't coming home for Christmas, so I don't see a point to making the effort to drag out boxes and put stuff up. Sigh. Maybe next year. Your border idea sounds perfect with your hexagons. Go for it.

I like that border idea, I think you could make a stunning finish to your quilt.

Another great idea - this will get you right away from needing to make more hexies - unless of course you are addicted and cant help yourself!-any of the border ideas would be great and it's up to you really!!

I have a nesting set too, and I also like to play with them and they are also played with by the younger ones. I have had my mind on so many other things that I only thought about doing a little decorating yesterday. Maybe next week. Love the applique idea.
