Vanity Fair Borders

I mentioned in my last posting that I had modified my design for the Vanity Fair quilt due to my tennis elbow and the time restraints for publication of the magazine. I had completed 3 of the applique borders which were in my original design, but, I was unable to complete the whole quilt which was a more accurate reproduction of the antique quilt. I thought I would share with you some images from these borders. Keep in mind that the corner appliques on the border do not appear as they are to be worked once the borders are attached to the quilt centre ---but--- there isn't a centre now as I used it in the finished quilt. I will have to remake it...slightly tweaked I think. Enjoy!


  1. Hi Michelle
    So glad you now have a blog! I just don't know how you fit it all in though, amazing. I hope your tennis elbow is on the mend, it is very painful. I am hyperventilating about the Vanity Fair quilt, it looks beautiful. Is there a picture of the original inspiration in a book somewhere? I can't wait for the pattern to come out and would love to see your original applique borders when you are on the mend. See you at Quiltsmith in August. Lindy

    Sorry to hear about your tennis elbow. The new design looks gorgeous. I love those blues and raspberry colours.
