I want to thank all of you who have sent personal e-mails to see it I was buried in snow. OH.MY.GOSH. Buffalo NY , you are in my thoughts and prayers. Some of our are emergency/rescue people and equipment have gone out to assist with clean up and search. We had a dusting that disappeared the next day. But it is COLD! So it is a good week to get those borders on.
This is the row quilt with Cindy at Quilt Doodle Designs. There needs to be a lot of embellishing and quilting on this one, but truth be told - I don't think I am going to get to that this year. I am happy to just get this to a flimsy stage and I really enjoyed participating in this quilt along.
And I got the border on the Charming Star quilt - participating with TERRY in a sew along using this pattern from Moda Bake Shop. I think there are 4 or 5 different charm lines in this - just needed to use them up and they blended together so nicely. The border fabric I know is a Moda, but the selvedge had been trimmed, so can't give you the name. A nice dark charcoal with little color discs that mimic the earthy colors of the charms. This one will have to wait on quilting too - there are 3 ahead of it - maybe a January finish.
Hope everyone is surviving the cold, stay inside and sew!
