Finish Quilt

1.    Layer quilt top, batting, and backing; baste. 

2.    Quilt as desired. Randi Helling stitched a curvy fleur-de-lis in each quadrant of the Broken Dishes blocks and a braid and leaves in the inner border strips (Quilting Diagram). She also stitched around each appliqué with a “scribble” stitch, going back and forth randomly over the edge to form about a 3⁄8"-wide band of stitching to secure the appliqué. A curvy four-leaf design fills each square of the outer border.

3.    Bind with dark brown print binding strips.
