I think I mentioned last week that I needed some more fabric for one of the borders. I was cutting this green 1 1/2” wide and was about 15” short. I have not had time to visit the local shop to see if I could match the green, but did have another piece left over that was 1” wide. And I am getting to the stage of not really loving this quilt, so decided to join the 1” piece which made up what I needed into 1 1/2” wide.
And this is how much I had left over after I did that!! Must have been meant to be.
But now I had a seam in the centre of a part of my border, which I was not real happy about. But,as they all say when there is a problem with the quilt,the quilter will fix it! And I have heard a lot of people say that to me. And I know that the next photo is a bit blurry, but this quilter has stitched a line through the centre of that border and now you can’t even see the join!!
This is how is looked when I switched off Max last night. You can see the line I stitched through the centre of both green borders.
I still have a lot of quilting decisions to make as I go, and hopefully it will talk quickly to me today. I have allowed only 2 days to do this and it is 95” square. I then need to do the binding and the sleeve and tidy my house for weekend guests. And hanging of the quilts is from 8.30 am on Thursday morning.
So I better close this and stand with Max and continue quilting. Did I say I am a bit over pink and green?? This quilt was intended for a bed in my house, but after the change around with beds from the moving, I no longer have the queen size bed in my house, so will have to find a new purpose for this quilt.
