Borders for Green Tea and Sweet Beans

No automatic alt text available.

Here are my two borders for Green Tea and Sweet Beans. These borders will be sewn onto the top and bottom of the quilt top. The top border still needs leaves. I've started preparing them. I use the freezer paper method so it will take a little while to get the leaves ready for applique.

Here's a close up of the top border. I like using different fabrics for the stems between flowers. I think it makes the border more fun.

This is a close up of both borders. It doesn't seem possible that these borders take so much time to make! When I finish the top border, I'm going to sew them onto the quilt top. It might make me feel as though I'm actually making progress on this quilt! These borders are nice but slow to make!
