The Birthday List #3

Finish this quilt:





I pulled it out of a drawer a few weeks ago and added the two outer borders. Now, I just have to decide how to quilt it. Machine or hand? Hand is slower, but has the potential to be more sociable. Hand quilting gives a softer line, machine quilting is more defined.

I'm thinking shells or seagulls in the borders, and something wavy in the long rows of triangles.

See my post about the birthday list here.

Your quilt is beautiful. Lovely colours. I have been quilting at long last after much procrastinating due to a new sewing machine I've had issues with. Hand quilting would be lovely. I must learn how to do this. I like the look of handstitching. I makes me feel calm just looking at hand stitching..
