but the quilt top has decided it's not. It tells me it wants a border. And I had one. In fact, the whole quilt was built around some fabrics I bought, including a striped deep rose pink that I thought would be perfect for the border. Well, it's not perfect, it's terrible. It's all wrong.
Has that happened to you?
And of course, no other fabric in my (rather too extensive) stash is right either. I actually think it needs a border of the brown/grey that makes up the corner-stones in the sashing - the centre of the faux churn dash block. Which, of course, I have none left of. Luckily I'm pretty sure I know where I got it from.
Now here's a question for you:
What do you put in your water when you cook a corned beef? It seems this is quite a traditional thing. Preferences passed down from parent to child. I put in a chopped onion, some whole cloves, a bit of golden syrup and bay leaves. I'd love to know what your preferred flavours are.
