Design Wall Monday - Penelope's Paradise

This week I made some advances on my Penelope's Paradise quilt. I assembled the two halves and sewed the flowers stems. The dresdens aren't sewn yet because I think I'm hand stitching them. Now I have to think about the way I'm doing  the borders. I'm accepting any tips or ideas cause I'm a bit uninspired today. Fell free to give me some advice.


If you'd like to check on more project, just link with Judy at Patchwork Times.

Idea for border: make a bunch of half Dresden plates and have them run around the edge of what you have done already.

A white background for the half Dresden plates would be very crisp but with so many lovely colors in the body of the quilt, any one of those would be lovely also.

Looks great! I love the white background with the ric rac... maybe that could be used again in your border?
