Another Rotherfield Greys Border

The end is in sight for my Rotherfield Greys quilt from the book Primarily Quilts by Di Ford.




These are my two favorite blocks from this border.  Each block looks like a little doll quilt, and they measure 4 1/2" X 6 1/2".   I am really enjoying this round.



Here are all of the blocks finished (44 total).  I have this border left with these modified churn dash blocks, then a round of a border print, and then lots of 1" six pointed diamonds (52 of them) that are appliqued onto squares.  


I've added the first two sides of this border to the quilt.....



Then I had to stop and do the hand work on the corners before attaching the last two sides.  The corners are fussy cut 1" six pointed diamonds that are English Paper Pieced with four applique flowers on each block.  I spent some time yesterday afternoon out on the deck working on the flowers.  







Thanks for stopping by for a visit!

I hope you are finding some time to stitch today!

I was just looking at this quilt in the book today - I am trying to decide which quilt in the book I will make - I thought I had decided on Phebe but changed my mind and I'm still looking.

It is beautiful, LuAnn, I love how you have used the prints in those little squares.

Chantal said...

Wow. This quilt is amazing. Every border is so much work, (compare to the borders I usually do) and so different from one to the next and yet they all play together so nicely. Love all the fabric you chose for this border. The fuzzy cut flowers are gorgeous!!!

Barb said...

Lu Ann,
This quilt is fantastic. Love your colors. I have Ann's Legacy waiting, but when I see your Rotherfields Greys I really think I like it better. Oh, and I'm four blocks down on the Wedding Sampler. So many things!
