It's a finished quilt top on the design wall today... woo hoo!
This is my version of the Rhododendron Trail which is the Quiltville mystery that started in November 2021. If you think it doesn't look exactly like the original design, you are correct. Here are the changes I made: 1) sew fewer blocks, 2) blocks are straight set, not on point 3) no sashing, and 4) different borders on the top/bottom and sides, made from leftover blocks.
Sewing the blocks together was a breeze, but the borders took a lot of thought.At first there was going to be a dark plain border but after I sewed 2 borders on and made a cutting error and ran out of the purple stick figure fabric, a new plan had to be made! (Pay no attention to the sewing machine collection on the top of the design wall!)
