Borders on the plaid!

 Thought I would try a picture out on the lawn...I finished the plaid checkered border!  Yahoo!!  My friend Linda O said she made two rounds of the black and white squares, so I did the same.
 Straight shot...
 The cotton version of the Primitive Gatherings block of the week.
 A little candle mat...
And some scrappy bindings all ready to go! Oddly enough, those bindings were very satisfying to make.  All bits of other bindings, saved, and now ready to be applied to scrappy quilts.  Love that!


Have a great day, everyone!!

Really love your quilt, especially with the checkered border!

Chantal said...

Oh yes, love the border. It is fun, not that the quilt was not fun but... you know I mean. Is it black and white or plaid black and solid white?

That border is great! I have a stash of binding too. Now to actually finish something that needs binding :)

Leeanne said...

Fun! Just think you could have a game of checkers on that too!
Ahhh.......scrappy binding, do you know so many people throw those binding bits out!!!!! I know, I can hear you screaming along with me!

Such a great finishing touch for this plaid beauty!
Another beautiful P.G. block.
I always have leftover bits of binding, but I never think to put them together for a scrap quilt. Won't these look fun on your scrap creations! : )

I adore this border. I have no idea why checkered things draw me in, but they do...and I love this.

What a gorgeous quilt! And the checkerboard border is perfect!!

Nancy said...

Great eye candy today! I save and use my leftover binding for pillowcase trim, but I may have to use it for a scrappy binding, too.

Wow, you just inspired me to do a check border on a paper pieced quilt from the 'Sew Out Loud' quilt along a couple years ago! Your quilt looks great...thanks for the inspiration too!

Linda O said...

Looks great, Julie! I love your block with your initials! Great idea to have your scrappy bindings all ready to go. Fun, fun!

You have been busy those borders looks so good...

Karen said...

Your plaid blocks came together well and the checkerboard border helped that.

Kim said...

Happy Sewing

Beautiful sampler! Love the checkered border

The quilt looks wonderful with the B&W border! What a good idea to get scrappy bindings ready, I just throw left over bindings in a drawer and it is there if I need some, but it would be a great idea to sew pieces together for a future project too!
