After much consideration as to what to do with the borders, I finally decided on applique teardrops to extend the cross blocks from the center. Making more four patches would have been ideal, but without background fabric, that just wasn't going to work. So I found a teardrop shape on google images and printed out several sizes and shapes to see what would work. After finding one with the right proportions, I cut out freezer paper templates and ironed them onto the right sides of the fabric.
They will look something like this when I get them sewn down. Now the best part, I get to settle down and spend a little time with needle and thread doing slow stitching. What a perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon. To see what other slow sunday stitching is going on in blogland, head over to Kathy's Quilts.
