I finally have a name for my new quilt, Harvest of Hope. I still have to do some embroidery on the basket block, but I couldn't wait to see how this section was going to turn out once it was sewn together.
I finished 36 components for my border and gave them wings.
Here are the four borders all lined up. In the past, I'm the greatest procrastinator when it comes to putting borders on a quilt. I find it boring to cut long lengths of fabric, get them just right and sew them on. This is the first border that I've had fun making! I think all of my borders from now on are going to be much more interesting.
I've been auditioning inner and double outer borders. I think it looks great on this side of the quilt.
But I'm not sold on this side of the quilt. I'll decide when I get the whole center section together.
Don't forget, tomorrow in the 2nd weekend of the month and that means it Christmas Quilt Along time. Our hostest is the very comical Hazel. To find out more information about the QAL, click HERE. The challenge this year is to make a Christmas quilt without using red or green. This is going to kill me! I've come up with an idea.....not sure that I'm totally sold on it.....but I'll give it a go.
See you tomorrow at the QAL. The Christmas music will be playing and driving our company bonkers. Actually, they will think that I'm going bonkers.....and they are probably right! I've just confirmed what Mr. Joe has known for years!
