Finish-Thank You-Apology










Whoever said it was a good idea to do pieced borders? Well, whoever it was didn’t say what a pain they are.












And, did they come out even on their own? NO they did not. I had to “fudge” a little, increasing some seams, like this.












But the outer border was much easier and now the top is done.

















I won a giveaway from Quilter Jan. This beautiful pen was made by her husband and now is mine. Isn't it beautiful? Thanks, again, Jan.




And lastly a heartfelt apology. I recently was given some chicken fabric and when I posted it, Belinda of Brown Dirt Cottage offered to send me some more if I wanted it. Of course I did and she sent these. When it arrived there was no name or with it and I couldn’t find the email to tell me who it was that was sending it. I didn’t post it’s arrival because I didn’t know who to thank. The fabric is wonderful and I am already beginning the process of quilt planning/design to include these fabrics with the others. Thanks Belinda.

  1. The quilt is beautiful, and yes pieced borders are a pain to get to fit exactly. It looks like you did a good job of it though.

  2. I agree pieced borders can be a pain and sometimes you have to fudge - sometimes more than others but they almost always turn out looking good - just don't point out the mistakes and it will be your secret!
