Whooping Friday


I had to do an indoor photo as we are still stormy and I refuse to stand in lightening and pouring rain to take a picture.  Yes, I got the quilt done and actually added three (yes, three) borders.  This quilt is made entirely of left overs.  Left over JR strips, left over charms,left over strips from prior projects, left over backing cut offs, left over borders.  


The JR was this floral line and I have the one floral in the rust, brown and blue extra wide for border/backs.  I had just enough of the brown left over from another quilt to use as the border - so that is cleaned up.


This is what I have left of the JR strips - all light.  I have probably only put a light binding on a few minis so this will be the first big quilt with a light binding.  The idea is to use this stuff up.  I'll bag it and pin to the quilt top as it goes onto the 'to-be-quilted' pile.


No parades, no fireworks (I hope to catch them on the TV), no gatherings.  We will have rain and severe storms that keep us in any way.  I plan to play with my scraps with the new Bonnie Hunter Scrap Challenge and have a hand project on stand-by should we lose power.  Stay safe, healthy, and cherish each and every day.   

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  7. I'm impressed that you added 3 borders. Hopefully today and tomorrow we'll get a nice break from all the rain.

  8. Your quilt looks great, and I’m so proud of you with your 3 borders! Sounds like a day to stay in and stay dry. We’re having just Erik and Mae up for a barbecue. Matthew is off camping. Happy Fourth!

  9. It always amazes me how you put leftovers together and they manage to look like they were meant to be together from the very start. A light binding will be a good finish for this quilt.
