A Pieced Border

I just couldn't leave it alone.  What I initially thought I would use as a border did not work.  It competed with the tulips.  A definite deal breaker!  And while I like the quilt without a border I just wasn't ready for it be done.....So here it is.

I can't tell you how pleased I am with how it has turned out!  this quilt went together a lot faster than I thought it would.  I even have the back pieced.  Now if I could just find a chunk of time to get it pin basted.  Somehow I think I am going to find some.....

Happy sewing!

Listening to your quilt

This quilt is definitely talking to me. 

Besides singing opera to  me, I think it is telling me it is done.  Here is the problem.  I want to put a border on it but so far I haven't been able to make it work.  I'm not done trying and I will definitely let you know how it is going.  

This is my baby on this quilt.  He thought this was much funnier than I thought it was.  But guess what?  He has no idea that I am posting this pic.  And I am giggling as I'm typing, right now.  Cause I think posting his pic is a lot funnier than he is going to think it is.  And I do love him almost as much as I love this quilt.....   ;)

Happy Monday Sewing!
