The Faithful Quilter is having a Thanksgiving giveaway. Actually she's having her Second Annual Thanksgiving Giveaway. Be sure to read her posts on Pincushion Mania and all of her Jo Morton projects. Gorgeous!
So Susie may have been onto something! This doesn't look bad at all. It currently measures 87 x 58 as it lies in pieces. When sewn together it will be a bit smaller. I may do a stop border to go next to the binding. So my goal now is to make all the blocks I will need-seven maybe?
It's a finished top. Well, I say finished. I'm going to have to shorten the top and bottom borders-I think they are too long to fit the batting! I bought a twin size batting on sale for this quilt. Still need to make the back and then I can send if off to Karen the Quilter.
So I was totally stuck on my Camp Peanuts quilt for Tig. As I lay awake with insomnia the other night the first step occurred to me: Take the Darn Borders Off! This is how it looked with the borders on. I mistakenly put these on thinking I was further along than I was. (Wishful thinking!)
So I took the borders off. Kind of a fresh start like. Not bad. If this was for a baby or toddler I'd probably stop here.
I had made several blocks, meaning to use them before adding the borders. Should I add them to the top or the sides? My friend Susie recommended that I use them on the side and add the previously removed borders to the top and bottom. That might just work. I'll lay it out tonight. I'll probably remove the red sashing between the existing blocks. In any case, more blocks must be made!
