Good Evening friends! I hope everyone has had a wonderful Sunday. Took the afternoon off from painting and cut the border for the quilt I talked about here
And I had time to sew them on too! It still is not wide enough for a king size bed. I am finding it hard to imagine how it will look after making the adjustments I need to make to change the size from a full to king size bed. If anyone has any suggestions it would be appreciated. I got an idea while looking at a Gooseberry Patch quilting book to add a scrappy type of border using the leftover fabric from the butterflies. It is strips sewn together and then cut to use as a border. The other problem I have is the quilt top is already pretty close to the length it needs to be. Do I add the border all the way around or just down the sides? Do I make the next border wider than the one I just added or the same width? Quite the dilemma isn't it? Well I am off to crochet and watch a movie with hubs. Stay warm! Blessings!
I am a mother of 3 daughters and grandmother of 8, 6 boys and 2 girls. I love to sew, paint, garden and enjoy many different crafts. Ladybug is actually my Scottie's name and she gives my hubs and I many hours of pleasure. I dream up many ideas of which a few I manage to make happen. My husband is very talented and has a few hobbies of his own so he puts up with my many hobbies and the mess they leave behind. I cannot say this blog is about anything in particular except our love of home, family and friends with a few interesting things sprinkled in here and there.
