String Me Along---almost the end

Trailing vines of leaves for the border quilting from the back side of the quilt......I really liked this pattern for border quilting.  It was so easy to connect to the next leaf and change direction.

Here's a partial shot from the front, but you can get an idea of the border quilting.   One leaf leads to another.  Some have  short "veins" stitched  in and others have a long middle veins----the trick that I used to move in another direction with a new leaf.  And unusual for me----no loops or swirls in the border. 

I have to stitch down the binding.   So it may be a couple days before I get to take a finished  photo.   And I want to make a table runner in this style, too.  I do believe I have enough scraps to do that.

Happy first day of Summer.....and happy stitching.

Leaves and vines is a perfect border quilting motif for this piece. Very nicely done.
