The last few months my mother was living she was able to do a little stitching by hand. I cut out squares and she sewed them together into four patches. Her stitching wasn't good because she often forgot what to do next while she was in the middle of the stitch and would simply sit and look at the needle for a while until it came back to her what she needed to do. Then she would slowly take another stitch. After she died I put the last few squares together into this quilt top..
I put a wide white border around it with plans to add something to the border...either some applique or embroidery. But it's hung in my sewing room for several years now and despite taking it out and looking at it multiple times, nothing is coming to me. The colors are bright and spring-like. The flowers are petunias. I'd love to hear some suggestions for that border.
I'm also wondering if someone knows the name of this pattern. This is an antique top I found at a flea market last year.
