I’ve added the border to the Ulu quilt block by using the leftover fabric from cutting the design out for the flower applique. I basically did “trial and error” like cutting out a snowflake from paper until it finally resulted in something I was happy with. The corners remind me of Moroccan doorways which I like very much! I’ve also been contemplating rotating the block on point (yes, I know this isn’t the traditional way to do a Hawaiian quilt but I like to do what I like! )
It is currently 25″ x 25″. I have now added a batting and backing and am ready to quilt it. Once the quilting is done I plan to scallop the edges before binding. This should bring the quilt down to approximately 22″-24″. I’m definitely adding beading but am still contemplating what colors, where and how much to add. (Yes, I am trying not to imagine it completely encrusted with beads…it’s difficult to do but I think I can control myself. haha)
Thanks for reading and Happy Sewing!!
