Introducing the 2013 TQS Block of the Month designed by Sue Nickels and Pat Holly! It's called "TWO OF US" and was created by the two of them. The quilt measures 79" x 79" and was completed just in time for Houston.

TOPIC: Month 9 Border

I'm working on it, even though i'm still stiching month 4! All borders are fused. I was hesitant about doing the 2013 on top, but so much has happen for me this year, it will be a nice souvenir.

I will change the flower so that the inner petals are offset from the outer petals (to look more like the quilt), but to make sure i do not bite into the inner when I stitch the outer, I have printed the pattern "fit to page" just for this shape, which is 94% - it makes the inner petal not even one eight of an inch smaller, just enough so the stiches don't overlap.

Can wait to see what you come up with, as the center of the top border (and how much change you will make overall!).

Did someone else notice that the big flowers on the pattern don't look the same as the quilt's? It would seem that the inner flower should be "offset" compared to the outer flower... Like this:

Or should I change glasses? :)

I've checked with ARJJ and the TQS crew knows nothing about an alternate plan. This is an opportunity for you do design your own!!

Have fun!!

Rosamond, I am also planning to replace the "2013". After putting so much work into this quilt I would rather have it seem "timeless." I've been scouring my Pinterest pages for bright ideas for replacements. Probably will be several flowers smooshed together somehow...

Well, I'm bummed that we weren't given the alternative pattern for this last border of the BOM. :? Pat Holly told me last month that they had designed an alternative flower to replace the "2013" for those not wanting to put that on their quilt. Boo, I guess I'm going to have to get my pencil and paper out and see what I come up with! LOL, a designer I am NOT! :roll:
