This top was made by two ladies in Wyoming.
One did the embroidered blocks and the other did the piecing.
There are 5 awesome embroidered blocks in the center.
The there were 3 flanges inserted into the outer borders. As the quilting "shrinks" the fabric, the flanges tend to ruffle. When quilting, I just tape the flanges back with a 12 inch piece of wide blue painter's tape and just move this along as I move the quilt. I always keep a roll of painter's tape handy in my studio!
Stars with ribbon streamers fill this area . . .
. . . one ribbon continues all the way up the side border.
It always makes my day to have finished another QOV!
