I thought about quilting swirls. Since the border finishes at one inch, I used a one-inch stencil and a Quilter's Pounce Pad to divide the border into one-inch squares.
I thought that it would look nice if I quilted a swirl in each square, but I like to be certain before I start quilting. I pulled out a roll of Quilter's Preview Paper and drew out the design.
Yep, I like it. Ready to quilt?
The quilting, part 2:
The thread: Spotlight from WonderFil, color 7713 Light Rust, InvisiFil in the bobbin
The needle: size 16
Isn't that thread gorgeous?
I quilted all of the orange borders with swirls. Here's a photo of part of the quilt:
Next week, I will quilt the black and white rectangles.
I can not wait!
