Yardage for border

I have looked through all through my patterns and cannot find out how much fabric we need to make the green swags in the border of this quilt.
Can anybody help?

Block #3 for Me

This is really Block #5, but it is the third one I've made.

I used one of the other blocks for the bud placement and that's what you see underneath.  This was a rather chunky block and I decided to lace it a bit more and made the center larger. I think I'll use it as my signature block.  I also decided to set it on point. Otherwise the corners came too close to the buds for me.

JoY - Block 12

Finally... block 12 is completed and on the wall!

I've somewhat jumped around as I missed a few blocks in the fall, but am on a roll now.  Really enjoyed the larger pieces of this block- it gave me a chance to fussy cut a larger scale print and get a little touch of blue into the quilt top.

Now backtracking.. block 11 is on deck for this month!

In the nick of time...

Caught up - waiting for November's offering...

Liking my fabrics but the thread count in the red drives me crazy...

September's block went smoother...

Thought October's block was a "strange" one - not sure what to call it except done!

Block 10

As I stitched this one I wondered what these elements represent - candle sticks? simplified fleur-de-lis? Any thoughts? It seems an unusual block but I like the symmetry.

Time to lay out all the blocks so far - two rows done now - yay!
I'm not stitching them together just yet - so back in a pile they go.
