Monday Making 7/18/16


Today I need to concentrate on getting those borders on my rail/colorwash project for Let's Book It.  I hate borders, so this will be a 'kick me in the pants' kind of day to get thru these.  Three borders!



To relax from those stressful borders, I will work inbetween borders with this project.  Yes, I have another hexie project in the works.  I've had this layer cake for a long time - even the wrapper and tag are gone so not sure what the name of this one is. I love blue, I love working with blue, and I love the feel of thread pulled thru fabric by hand.



I hope you are enjoying The Hop - so many great projects in the first four days and still more to come.  Today's hosts are:



Be sure to catch the next step of SARAH"S quilt along.  It may seem like a daunting step, but you can do it.


This is a quilt I made a few years ago and is a free pattern with Red Rooster found HERE.  This one worked up really fast and used up a lot of scraps.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  5. I dislike borders too, but not as much as paper piecing. LOL. I like your idea of working in between each one, however. That is how I break up those tasks I don't want to do.

  6. I thought you were done with hexes, but that blue and white is beautiful so I can see why you'd keep going. Borders always make me think of you, I just left off a border on a quilt and thought how you would approve :)

  7. I kinda feel the same way about borders. But they do make for a pretty frame on a quilt. Sets it off nicely. Thanks for reminding me this Christmas quilt pattern is on my short list.

  8. Sometimes I would like to skip the border. But, honestly, especially when there is a pieced border it adds so much to a quilt. So, get going and put on the border.
