As I have written before, this quilt was made from a pattern published in Quilts Japan. Unfortunately, as I do not read Japanese, I can not tell you the name of the author of the pattern.
It was the first time I added borders to a quilt and I am so pleased with the result that I will definitely do this again. Quilting the border was a long labour of love though, and I'm not sure how often I'll be able to repeat this proces on other quilts.
I'm now working on my very first hand sewn hexagon quilt, another long term project. For some reason, those always seem to attract my attention.
