Uncle Sam

I just love this panel!  I just added the red and white striped borders.  I wish they were a little darker but I am trying to work from stash here.  I'd like to quilt this with baptist fans.  We'll see how that goes.

added some borders

I decided that this one really needed a border-it just looked unfinished.  The blue will finish about 2.5 inches.  I started to quilt it but the backing got really wrinkly.  I will try again when I'm not so tired.

So Google reader is on its way out so I am trying out Feedly and Bloglovin.  Not sure if I like either.

back sewing

 Thankfully, I've got my Janome back!  It sounds like it is running kind of loud so I need to check it a bit before I do too much more sewing.  Here is my latest project.  I'm using a panel that wasn't printed straight so I decided to trim the blocks a little wonky after I added the goldish fabric.  The blocks measure 10.5 inches.
I can't decide which fabric to use for the binding: red, gold or blue print.  But now as I look at this photo, I think I should find some dark  blue.  This will be a little wall-hanging either for home or my office.


 It's a top!  My goal for my two week vacation was to get this to a top and here it is!
