All are stitched on to borders

I got all the hand stitching done on each block. Seamed the four blocks together and then the borders are the key in this one I think. I had hubby bring in the postage twine and I made bias piping. I sewed it to the curved border I cut out. I took a folded piece of freezer paper and cut a curvy border for the outside edges. I stitched the piping to the curved edge and trimmed and clipped so it would lay flat. I plan on stitching it down by hand on all four edges. I will miter the corners.
I have had this border fabric for a long time and not known what to use it for. It is a small pink print with yellow and blue and green little flowers in the print. I think the borders will pull this all together. more later. Chris

I love how you did this border with freezer paper and the fabric is perfect.
