When I finished hand me down top, to be honest, I just wanted to be done. I had worked at it with intent, and, I was losing motivation. I really thought I would skip the cool border that was in the pattern and just add a plain border. I let it steep for a few days, and, I realized part of why I started the quilt, was the border. But, 5 rows? really?
I decided to go for it. I have enough fabric, and, I tend to make bed size quilts, and, I started the quilt with the border as part of the plan. The blue stripe was yardage but the rest were shirts. I had to be creative in piecing it together. This is my one monthly goal for April and I am cutting it close.

I always start with good intentions of making a pieced border, but then just want the thing done, so I do fabric strips. Congrats for not giving in. It's going to be a cool finish with that border.ReplyDelete
