Today I just need to add a 3 1/2 inch border of that same rust print all around and then this puppy will be done!
I've got some batting bits to stitch onto an existing piece that I had already prepped before we can pin it up. Cindy had brought some fabric to share with the Belles, some large enough for backing---there was a perfect neutral toned piece among the selections. Woohoo! Love it when a "plan" comes together!
I was intrigued with her method of chain piecing her rows---maybe how Eleanor Burns does it but I never try?? It worked for her, that is all that matters. Cute water melon print! There was a piece of shamrocks on white that may well work for backing this.
I had found a black print with pink and red words on it that should be perfect for this. We'll get them pinned and I'll quilt them up for the kids.
The one of the very bottom will be perfect for the Belles "miles of black" challenge. I know what I want to do there but just need the light background piece for a three color quilt. There is may be enough for another quilt or even the backing.
More later----I have a 3rd border to put on! Then move on to another that I can finish up at the retreat days on Friday and Saturday. (I'm day tripping for that one) I just about left the car packed up, LOL.
