Most of you know that I hate to do borders. I decided that yesterday was the day to get those quilts sitting on the shelf that were waiting - bordered! This is my snowball/9-patch that I have been stitching along with Terry. A back has been pieced for this and will be my next quilting project.
This is a free pattern by Me and My Sister Designs and can be found HERE. I made this as a Let's Book It project and still needs finishing. The back has been pieced and it will be quilted next in line. This pretty fabric is Crazy for Red by Minnick and Simpson.
As much as I hate to do borders, I hate more so to make large quilts - HA!! This is a sampler for my Quilt Guild challenge of a block a month - to encourage members to make at least one block a month. I have an 'aged' extra wide on the shelf that will be used for a back on this one - so I can move that fabric on.
And this one is even bigger and was impossible to photo outside - we are a bit still in the mud season and there was some wind. This thing wanted to sail! I had seperated my lites (low volumn) from my medium/dark 2.5" square barrel storage system - I had two barrels crammed. So this quilt evolved just to use it up. This will get an extra wide backing (I move scraps out fast, but my yardage sits on the shelf forever) and not sure if I will quilt it or send it out to a long armer.
Now that my borders are done - to move on to a project that should have no borders:
There is an urgent request for quilts to be passed out to the Illinois tornado areas. I don't want to copy/paste/repeat - so will let you visit Cheryle's blog to get all the latest information. There is a very quick upcoming deadline, so find a quilt sitting on the shelf, finish up a flimsy, a quick panel, or a quilt that has been sitting just waiting on it's binding. I have two quilts I pulled from our shop and they are heading out in the mail tomorrow.
