Good Things....Totally Finish Finished

To follow up on my previous post: I could not find just the right ribbon to use for the finishing so I went a different way. I created a fabric border for the edges. I cut out comic book board one inch wide and 21 inches long - well not exactly since the comic book board is 8.5"x11". I cut two one inch strips and them placed them around the stitched block, scoring the corners to make them fold over nicely and cutting away any excess.

I then padded the comic book board strip with batting (hindsight maybe padding the bottom was not a good idea - it is a tad wobbly, so I may add feet of some sort) and then covered it all with the same fabric used on the back.

Then to hide some of the edges on the front I glued cording around the front and added a bow at top. I am not 100% sure I like the bow, but have until August 8 to make up my mind before I take it to the Jefferson County Fair.

That about covers it for now!!!!
