Acorn Quilt
I have been wanting to try and make this quilt for a while, I was'nt sure about the wide border if I could do it. I had to do it my way, but I got it done.. Still have some trimming up to do plus have think about if I can quilt it myself. I know I can do the middle, but I don't want to mess up the border, it took allot of work to get this made..

That looks incredibly tricky - especially lining the corners of the borders up like that. It's absolutely wonderful - thank you for posting the pictures.

Was allot of extra work the way I had to do it get it right. Put the border on, add the applique, take each piece off again sew on the applique then put all back together again. Once all back together, only then could I do the corners.So more work but worth it to get it right.
