Rotherfield Greys - More Borders

I've finished the next two borders on my Rotherfield Greys quilt.  I feel the same with this quilt as I did with my Dear Jane quilt.  I'll be excited to see the quilt top finished, but at the same time I'll be a bit sad to see it end.  I have really enjoyed all of the different borders on this quilt.  


I really like how the mitered border print frames all of the elongated churn dash blocks.  


Sometimes my photos make my quilts look like they're not quite square.  I checked this corner (below) after looking at the photo, and it wasn't square.  So I took the mitered border off and squared the corner and put the miter back on.


The last planned border is 1" six pointed stars and I've started working on those.  The quilt finishes at 84" X 84".





There are 52 of these little 1" stars that are English Paper Pieced and then appliqued onto a background.  Each star has the same tan points, and I've fussy cut all of those.  You can find my fussy cutting tutorial here.  There is also a link to it under my blog header.






I'm linking up with Judy for Design Wall Monday at Pachwork times.  

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!

I hope you are finding some time to stitch today.

That quilt is breathtaking! I just love it! I cannot imagine the amount of time and effort you put into that.

And those EPP stars ... So sweet! Love the background fabric you've chosen for them.

I love this quilt and yours is just stunning. Very clever to use the same tan fabric to bring consistency across your perfectly pieced stars.
