Border attached to Wavy Irish Chain wallhanging

Tonight I attached a border to the Wavy Irish Chain wallhanging. I chose a dark green with black dots for the border. I like it a lot. The fabric doesn’t appear anywhere else in the quilt, but that’s okay.

I had a time deciding whether to leave the outer edges of the wallhanging straight or to make them wavy like the rest of the seams. After thinking about it and getting encouragement from my daughter-in-law Laurie, I decided to go for the gusto and make the edges wavy. Why not? Even if the quilt doesn’t hang quite right, I can figure out something to make it behave.

The edges look pretty straight now, but tomorrow I’ll cut waves into the outer edges. Then I’ll get ready to do some machine quilting. I started working on this piece in July, but set it aside to work on other projects. Now I’m just a few days away from finishing. Woo-hoo!
