A day of quilting

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:
