The Home in the Garden, Corners Added

Getting these corner triangles exactly right was a bit taxing to my right-brained self, especially with my block on point and this piece having to measure precisely 15" square, finished.
However, somehow this came out o.k.!

The inner stitching line is 1/4" out from where my finished edge will be.
That blue cotton lace was the last of about 25 that were auditioned....but when I held it in place, I knew that was the one.
Now, to fill in those corners...something viney, I think.......

Those blue corners and the blue seam embellishments really are perfect for that piece. It has tremendous impact!

Methinks I'm seeing something familiar on this quilt! Very beautiful as always.

Looking good. You're right about the tricky math. Isn't it a pain when something has to be an EXACT size?

Another example of bodacious beauty from the mind (and hand) of Allie. Goodness gracious, girl, you've outdone yourself again!

Simply perfect... I think if you had pieced the corners, it would have overwhelmed the center portion. Pure genious!

Oh, yes, that is the right blue lace! Can't wait to watch this one progress.

That celestial blue is the perfect framing colour. Lovely.

Wow! This piece keeps getting better and better. The blue really sets it off.

The choice of a single blue for the corners was inspired and really helps focus the piece and bring it to one glorioius end view. Lovely.
