I took off the original borders and added slightly larger ones because they weren't in great condition after I took the original quilt apart.
I did some continuous curves in the colored sections and then free hand feathers in the white & borders.
I was hoping that I could bring out a sort of pinwheel effect. Not sure if that came across or not.
As I got towards the end, the yellow border was too big and I ended up getting some bunching happening. Not quite sure how to prevent that. Probably need to pay closer attention when adding borders to a quilt. This one is not remotely square since I didn't think 1/4" seams mattered back when I made the top almost 11 years ago.
