A Bygone Era: Mine Shafts

Quilt # 82


This is my #8  in the UFO Challenge 2012 for March . A challenge issued by Judy Laquidara at Patchwork Times. Click the orange 2012 UFO Challenge button at right for more info.

A Bygone Era: Mine Shafts

This is what it looked liked at the time.  Notice there was an extra column of flying geese on the left hand side?

After having it sandwiched and started quilting, I had a good look at it to try and figure out what I did not like about it.

I folded the border over that column of geese and liked it a lot better.  So I remove the flying geese and replaced the border before doing anymore quilting.  Much better, don't you think?
