Borders are on!!!

Alrighty then! I have all four borders on! Can we all jump up and scream "Yahoo!!!" At least I did...hey, I have another empty UFO bin, for this one was a true UFO! I do love to make this border, don't know why, but it is fun, fun, fun!! Poor Rosie the poodle...she has a hard life...on top of the quilts, and toy close under her paw...tisk, tisk! I showed the 2 inch strip version, completed, and the new top with 2.5 inch strips. I also made a 1.5 inch strip version, and it has flown the coop! I cannot find it anywhere!!
I thought Rosie might move if I walked around and took another shot...fat chance! She was just fine, right where she was!
Anyone for a slice of pie? It sure was good! (Notice the past tense)....



Thank you everyone so much for your encouragement and stories of your loved ones moving far away...I so appreciate your kind friendship!!!


Have a super great day!

Julie

Rosie knows a good thing when she sees it.

Very pretty. I love the colors and the pattern that is simple and yet interesting.And the pie is pretty , too.

Nicky said...

I am envious of your finish of another stunningly gorgeous quilt with beautiful colours Julie! Whereas I am just committing myself to framed square on point borders round my plaid string quilt - must be mad!

Vicki W said...

That's a really nice pattern. I'd love to make one of those with my hand dyed scraps.

Jeanna said...

Beautiful quilt, cute pup and delicious looking pie. So glad you enjoyed it!

Yvette said...

I just love how you have a big quilt and a little matching one. They are just too cute!!! Rosie is a little cuter though. ;)

OK, that pie looks delicious. It wouldn't have lasted long in my house.

Oh wonderful! Rosie is a lot like Chloe. Good thing they don't get together!

Leeanne said...

Love the quilts, big and small! Didi you notice your pie has a nine patch pattern!

Deanna said...

EEeepp! That is a great looking quilt. And I agree about the borders. Maybe the next time I need a special border for a quilt I will try it.

Anne Heidi said...

The quilt is gorgeous! It always feels so great to finish a UFO! Makes it even easier to start something new...
The pie sure looks good- I can understand why you write about it in past tense...lol

I love the quilt in two sizes! It is a great scrap quilt, Julie--again!
I love cherry pie, but I am alone in that in my family (except for the daughter and son-in-law that moved to Idaho last year). I have a freezer full of cherries, but I know if I make it, I eat it. So they stay in the freezer!

Borders on, dog too!! ;)

The quilts are absolutely BEAUTIFUL!

I have experienced what you're going through with family moving far away. Our son moved to TX when he graduated from college and I thought my hear would break wide open. Eventually he moved back, however I recall that pain and the sadness. I know how tough it is, I am thinking about you. Pass the pie. ;)

I like the block design and the way it looks on point.

Your quilts turned out beautiful! Love the mini that Rosie is modeling. I love how you get so much sewing done! and now baking too. Your family is a lucky group!

Lori said...

Rosie really does look like she has a difficult life:) LOL

The border is perfect!! Woo-Hoo!

Purple Pam said...

What a beautiful scrappy quilt. I like your border treatment. Rosie looks quite determined to stay where she is. She wasn't even tempted by that delicious looking pie?

Elaine Adair said...

Yahoo, terrific, hooray!!! Love it, and the border is PERFECT. It's a great quilt!!!

Jeanne said...

I love all sizes of your quilt! And the pie looks yummy, too.

That's the perfect border for that quilt!

Sandra Coleman Clarke said...

Love the scrappy quilt. Does the pattern you used have a name. I know there are 9 patches in the center of each. Thanks.

Linda said...

Hi Julie- enjoyed looking at your quilts! The plaid is lovely! Would you please let me know what book or pattern your nine patch quilt comes from? I would like to dive into my 2.5 square box and get started.:-D
Dear Jane ladies are so lucky now a days with all the reproduction fabric choices. I encourage you to get back to it. After finishing a DJ quilt many years ago I still like to look at it. Visit my blog and see mine.
