Visiting the Border



I spent Tuesday at the border. No, I didn't go to Mexico and I wasn't walking that thin border between sane and crazy. (Although I have been there a few times lately, but that is a story for another day.) I was putting a border on my quilt.




Looks good doesn't it?! And it will really look good once it is quilted! But first I have to go piece the back. (I can't help myself, I LOVE a pieced back!)

And lastly, do you like my new blog look? I have to thank my fabulous friend Miss V. Isn't she great! As if she didn't have enough to do. (Believe me!) Thanks Victoria, you know how much I appreciate you!

Know I gotta go piece a back. Happy sewing!

Shelly, love the updated blog look. Your quilt is gorgeous! Just showed it to my daughter who walked by the computer...she loves it too. The border is a nice addition. Really love those tiny, colorful, batik squares in the quilt top, not to mention your appliqued leaves. Can't wait to see the pieced back. I also am motivated by your previous blog post on quilting it ourselves. Gonna type that out and post it above my sewing machine at the new place. Sorry for the long comment...making up for lost time ;-)
