This is one of the colorways Genny provided in her instruction booklet. It is all DMC cotton floss. Can you see my initials and date on the bottom edge? The instructions for this are actually in the 9 Patch book. It uses floss just 1 shade off the color used in the border.
This is another good example of framing on a budget. I actually "framed" this myself. It is on stretcher bars that fit the dimensions of the design. Then I hot-glued trim along the outside edges to cover the canvas. I could have used fabric on the edges and tied it into a bow at the top OR many other variations.
