Finally Finished

First boarderThe first border is a yellow print from the 1930’s retro pack of fat quarters, but the quilt was not quite big enough yet – so a trip to the local quilt shop for some matching or close to matching border and backing.

I selected the green print for a 5 inch border all of the way around making a 60 inch by 40 inch finished size.  I think this will work out nicely for someone -don’t you?

Now it is back to the shop for some excellent long arm work

Working toward a finished quilt top

Time has flown and I have not had a chance to blog or sew in ages!  The dust is collecting on my dining room table and it is time to clear the dust and get ready for Thanksgiving!  The blocks were all stacked and just waiting for the right time…….

stacked rows of squares   the next steps…….  putting the squares into rows and adding borders – sew quick and easy!
