On the Design Wall was Henrietta Whiskers, a Bunny Hill BOM. The center was completed over a year ago and then put on my “completed” rack. Every time I saw it I thought it was ready for quilting so on Saturday I took it off to measure so I could prepare the backing. Was I ever surprised to find that it only had two borders sewn on. So up on the design wall it went. And, then I said “what was I thinking?” I love orange but it just didn’t look good with this top. So off they came and I started thinking up a new plan.
I found these two fabrics to join with the orange. The plan: small darker border, orange border and then the wood like border.
However after putting the first little (1”) border on I decided the quilt was finished. It is the perfect size for a wall hanging and I have the perfect wall for it.
I already had the backing fabric so before I could overthink it, off to the frame it all went. I didn’t start the quilting but will this week.
I did spend some time at the sewing machine and got all the applique sewn down on the Owl wall hanging. It will probably be the next thing on the frame.
I found some time to enjoy my quilter’s hammock.
And even time for Abby who, every morning, pokes her head out of a quilt to ask if it is time to get up.
Hope everyone has a great week. Gari
