America, Land That We Love

Okay, my bad.  I didn't finish two pictures; BUT, I did start a new one.  I bought this chart a few years ago off of ebay.  I cut the fabric, pulled the 65 skeins of floss and stared at it for months.  I than decided it was just to big.  Well, since than I have started FIVE BAP so I figured I could tackle this one again.  Here is a snap of the border.
America - Land That We Love - Jean Farish - 14 ct natural

I am thinking of doing all the borders the same.  America - I am thinking of doing in red and bs with blue and white tog.  The bottom words in blue and bs with red and white tog.  Please let me know what you think of this first square.  All comment are appreciated.

Thanks for looking.    Linda

Linda, your state border looks great!
Why didn't I think of that before I started - I may have to stop and puzzle over this a bit before I stitch another state border.

Way to go, Linda! You can do it, and I do like what you're doing with the border.

I personally like BAPs... lots of them so that I never need to be bored. This is going to be fun to watch.

I like your idea for the borders!

I also have several baps going. We'll never be bored as when we tire of one, we can switch to another.
