A great morning because for one of the maybe 10 days a year, I woke up to a cloudy day! No sun. Temp outside at noon was 92 on my porch. Yet, it really feels wonderful and cool!
So, today is a quilting day. I am trying hard to get this greyhound quilt ready to be quilted and then bound and then shipped to my friend Cheryl!
I put on a 1.5" border and then made a colorful border that is 2.5" wide. And then the binding will probably be either plain white or it will be white and the moda marbles alternating. I do love variegated bindings!
It will be fun to see how it all looks before it's quilted and after it's quilted and bound! :)
These are my piles of 6" print blocks and 5.5" marble blocks. I sewed them all together and then will put it on the quilt.
Here's all those blocks sewn together! Quite a long strip of borders!
The blocks, waiting for me to sew them onto the quilt!
I have many of my old worn out blades, I have a plastic container I put them into when I change them out. I swear I am going to try one of those sharpeners that I have read about. Anyone try one? What did you think? Do they work? It sure could save me a lot of cash I do believe! I swear, I could change that blade at least once a week most weeks and still be sawing by the end of the week! :)
Ok, I was taking a lunch break, and now that I'm done eating I want to get these borders on that quilt so I can do something with some of the fabric I've pulled out of my stash! I love this quilt, but it is work vs. play! :) Have a great afternoon! Anne
