Close-up of the finished redwork piece.
Then I cut them into 2 1/2 inch strips and chain pieced them together.
Here's where I am at now.
I sewed a 1 inch border around the redwork piece.
Then randomly pieced the strips together to form a scrappy patchwork border.
So far I've sewed on the 2 long sides. The baby started crying, putting my heavenly (and rare) 90 minutes of sewing time to an end. So I will finish the top and hopefully get her sandwiched and basted tomorrow!
