Making a incredible focal piece is just a beginning for Allie. Everything she adds to finish it not only coordinates with the piece, it enhances it and the entire project becomes grander with each addition and most important, it is all in harmony.
Her current piece of work has a wonderful floral piece as the center to which she added an embellished CQ border. That might be enough for an ordinary person...not Allie. She added another CQ border which would have been extraordinary by itself....not Allie. She is now adding hundreds of leaves which will require additional hours to the finishing. When Allie has a vision she never considers the extra work involved. I so admire the way she finishes everything that now every time I am about to finish something I have conversations with Allie in my head.
The cottage blocks I'm finishing into books is a case in point:
And I think the embellished backings will work beautifully with the cottage blocks especially since most of the blocks have a similar stripe in them... Now I just need to do 13 more... Thank for the advice Allie!!!
