Ok, frog stitching!
I first made this little quilt top several years ago. I thought that to put borders on, you just lined up the fabric and sewed it on!! NO measuring, etc. Well, I have learned better than that now. So, I have taken the borders off ,actually measured, and reattached. Only Three inches taken off the outside border, that's not bad, right? (grins) I did have a before picture, but it has disappeared somewhere in the computer...
Now I am hand quilting it in baptist fans, and should be finished soon. Just a finish, not a new little quilt, and about 3 yards used from the stash. It is square and true, just a bit rumpled from being in my lap. You can see the baptist fans on the right hand side.
I have been following Judy L's blog and all of your stash busting efforts, and I am doing the same. I have used around 9 yards in the last 2 weeks. Pretty good, I think!! Everyone is doing great. I also gave away some yarn and 5 yards of border fabric to a friend who needed it for a finish.
Have a wonderful day, JulieQ
