Project Quilting Season 2 Challenge Two -- I Chose the Border Fabric and started to Quilt

Just a peek at the corner of the Name of a Place Quilt after the first part of the quilting.  
First I cut the background fabric into a rectangle - about 17" X 24".
Then laid out some fabrics along the sides. I liked the soft blueish fabric the best. Works perfect for the border fabric. Cut the border fabric 3" wide. Stitched the borders on all four sides. Makes the quilt top approximately 22" X 29".

Quilted wavy lines horizontally with a cream thread. See the next pictures to see how it started. I used a double thickness of poly batting. Makes it really fluffy!

Started at the top and waved across the quilt.

Stitched the sides of the quilt top down tight, so it would stay in place nicely while waving across the quilt.

What's the name of the place? Not yet, next blog.... later today!
