Fussy Cutting - Can You see the Join?

My DD is just learning to quilt - a necessary distraction from her day job....

She has just completed her 3rd quilt top but came up against the issue of not having enough width in the fabric to cut her borders from.  The fabric she was using would have just shrieked a join so....

The solution....FUSSY CUT IT.

Can you see the join?

Maybe this will help..........

All up, I am hard pressed to find the join even when I am deliberately looking for it.

It took a little extra time and fabric.  We found a suitable repeat in the fabric, cut along it allowing for a turnover (seam) and then appliqu├ęd the pieces together with small hand stitches.
