Recently noticed this swag border anchored by hearts
in a mid-19th-century quilt in an online auction. I
hadn't seen that border with the hearts before.
Notice it's only along one side; on the other three sides
the swag is pinned with a circle.
Print this pattern out for a 9" swag.
That could be useful.
I've got a small idea file for scalloped/swag borders:
Some of which have odd numbers of scallops.
And some even.
Seamstresses in Baltimore often added a dogtooth appliqued edge.
What sewing show-offs they were!
