Border for Green Tea and Sweet Beans

It's so hard to get a good picture of a border. Too long! It measures 8 inches wide and 60 inches long. I took a few close up pictures also.

I love using different green fabrics for the stem. It makes the border so interesting. I'm reusing a lot of my freezer paper so it's actually a little faster. I have everything marked with a water soluble blue marker so it's easy to work on one small section at a time.

This picture gives you an idea of how the border will look on the quilt. I like it! An appliqued border takes a while but adds so much to the quilt. I'm looking forward to making more borders. I think I'll make the top next since it will be a mirror image of the bottom border. Another great way to use scraps!
