The One Block wonder quilt body is finished, and decisions about the borders are ongoing. Light as inner, or dark? How wide? How many? Or will I wait till I visit the fabric shop and buy a whole new set of batiks that are perfect? My design boards are not wide or tall enough now, I thought they were so good, until I tried to get all this and some border fabrics on it. So part of the quilt is draped over the top.
However, the bonus of this was that there were 6 blocks left over, and I have done some trial quilting lines, crosswise and straight, to see what might be better once I do the large quilt. This is all finished!!! Batting, backing and stitching. Even the binding!!! This is a little large, but will cover my laptop so well. Dust proof!! Please ignore the camera angle, those borders are really straight.
I am happy for any suggestions about the borders, and the quilting lines. Myself, I like the crossways ones. Please ignore the corners where they were sort of triangles, this wasn’t part of the plan.
Meantime, back at the machine, I have a large sort of “ carpet-bag” type of bag to finish for a birthday present , needs to be done by 6 p.m.
Still no spell check on open Live Writer, hope I proof read it all.
And then on Saturday, more sewing, a bag for the “expensive shopping” I did for Hugh’s Birthday. Need I say more, but it starts with a small letter “i”….
