Some of the girls in my quilt group came over today and we worked hard. Quilt to be layered was the Quilt for Ireland. You can see the bindle of binding sitting ready to go - that is the same as the backing.
Next we sewed the borders on the two mystery quilts that I have been working on and layered them. I really like the yellow in this one and the burghundy/dark red tones the quilt down, which my boys said was necessary to make it more boy friendly. Who knows......but the colours worked so why not.
I have to say I love the blue border on this - loved it from the minute I put it next to it and it wouldn't have been my first choice of colour for the border. I forgot to take the quilt to the shop when I went to choose borders and had to guess and the only reason I grabbed the blue was becuase it was such a lovely colour but it seems to bring the quilt to life. Everyone else had the same reaction.
Today I have some guys installing a pergola over our BBQ area and I want to quietly watch what they are doing so I am going to set up and sew on my dining room table. Hopefully I will get some aprons made for Ireland too.
Till next time...............happy stitching!
