YOU HAVE ENOUGH QUILTS WHEN YOUR SOUL IS FILLED,
YOUR CREATIVITY SATISFIED
AND YOUR FINGERS JUST WON'T WORK ANYMORE

A little sewing and Borders

Well, home from the weekend away and had the urge to do some sewing. While looking thru some boxes the other day for sewing to take to our Night Group I came across this quilt I had made some time back. Wasn't very fussed on the result as I thought it looked pretty plain even though the repo fabrics are just beautiful.


But I hate giving up on a quilt and so put some borders on. Put a narrow 1 1/4 inch inner border on and it immediately looked better.

Then the outer border and hey presto it looks 100%.
It's just amazing how borders can change a quilt so much.

So have made the binding and will prepare the backing tomorrow and it can go into the cupboard of The Great Unquilted.

It looks great with borders! My ocean waves quilt was like that... I didn't love it until the borders were on - sometimes there is just something about borders that finishes things up nicely!
Cheers! Evelyn

That's too nice of a quilt for The Great Cupboard. How many quilts are in there anyway?
