I got the center part of this top sewn up on National Quilting Day…along with three others, but who’s counting? I love how quickly these sew up…it’s a version of the 1600 Jelly Roll pattern only the strips aren’t sewn together at an angle. I’m lazy and that way just takes too much time, not to mention that it wastes fabric and who wants that! The tricky part, at least for the ladies at my LQS, was in helping me choose fabrics for the borders. My choices won out as theirs seemed to have come from outer space.
Whaddya think? The chocolate brown border kind of blends into the grass, but it’s there I promise.
The Diva even helped me press some of the border fabric while wearing her handy-dandy oven mitt.
Now, to get it quilted. Mama assures me her quilting machine is fixed and ready to go. I hope so as I have a home in mind for it…the home just doesn’t know it yet 😉
