that's better

I did get some inspiration today and finished off the trellis quilt.  I decided to fill the remaining half circles in the border with some straight lines, and then added some "fiddleheads" for a little whimsy.

Large open swirls fill the pieced strips.

I like how it has turned out - "modern vintage" - what do you think?

So beautiful! Janet, do you mark any of those lines first as a guide? I'm pinning this one as a reference -- it's just so great! And accessible.

Just gorgeous Janet! I love everything about it. The borders are amazing, especially love the fabric you used. What is that shade called?

It is lovely and I need to remember to do one thing, then another and then add the wee bit of fiddleheads for the last flourish! :)
