The first border

It's wet and cool in Tokyo, so I changed the background display to something 'rainy'.

There are several borders on my bias tape quilt.

On the first one I appliquéd a meandering pink tape. On top of that I made romb shaped straight stitches and in the centre of each romb I placed a sequin and a small seed bead. On the outer edge I added small detached chain stitches in lime green. I have now made a couple of quilting lines along the tape and in each inner valley I quilted a circle. 
Today's job is to add  floral sequins in those circles.

Another job for today is to ponder what to do with the new TAST stitch, which is Buttonhole wheel.
