Today I went to sew with my Mom and Aunt Kitty. For the first part of the afternoon I put borders on the Irish Chain golf quilt that I’m making for Mike. I got the binding made too. No pictures because it was too large for my Mom’s apartment. It ended up 80 x 100…so much for a “lap” quilt. Giggle. I’ll get a picture posted one of these days when Mike can hold it. It’s going to get thrown into the “to be quilted” pile until I find a job and can buy the backing. I really want to go with a golf print instead of making a scrappy back.
Next it was onto the Ocean Waves quilt. I got the center assembled the inner border on and the pieced border made and attached. I now need to add another white border and then decide how large I can go with an outer blue border because I want to use it for both outer border and binding and I only have about a yard and a half left. It’s not the greatest picture but I’ve GOT to show it because it looks soooo flipping awesome if I do say so myself!!
Here’s a sneak preview of the border I’ll be adding:
