It is cool and cloudy here. Its good quilt piecing or reading weather. Reading is something that I haven't gotten to do much of lately. I've been babysitting alot. When I get the chance to read I don't like to put the book down when I get started. What are you reading? Are you reading a great book that you would like to reccomend? I just love to read. Reading takes me to places that I will never be able to travel too.
Take time to sew today.
My hubby says I am happiest when I am sitting at my machine. :)
I don't even have this one finished and I have another idea for one that is similar. I might work on it this winter. I still have lots of scraps left for another. I am trying to use up some scrap/ugly fabrics. There are plenty of them in this quilt..
Pic below is the start of one of my borders.......
Below is the back of the quilt. I didn't think it really matched the front but I saw this fabric at Joann's Fabric and just knew it was meant for this quilt for him. Actually I used a black binding and it looks great. And guess what I done? Silly me let him have his quilt before I got a picture of it completed. Ohhhh where was my brain. Sometime I think it is on vacation. LOL
Sorry the photo isn't great. Quilt hasn't been quilted so it was hard to hold up. I put a large border on this one so that after it is quilted I can put a scalloped edge on it. I have never done one before and so I am gonna experiment on one for me. Also made this twin size extra long so that I can put it under and over the pillow. Everyone that sees this quilt top says that they like the brown and that they would never have thought to have picked a brown to go with it.
