Trying to finish some things up!!
At last, I have a quilt top all together! (mostly) I made this with my niece, who made one just alike, and we shared fabrics. It is all batiks, except for the borders. I have no batik fabrics that were big enough to cut borders, so I just used what I could find in the stash.
I have no idea where this fabric for the border came from, but it seemed to want to be in this quilt.
What do you do if you want a bigger quilt, but don't want to make any more blocks? I am going to put a strip of applique in that white strip! I am excited about that part...I just can't stick to a pattern, can I?? By the way, this quilt pattern is by Bonnie Hunter...thanks, Bonnie!
I tried to make the little three inch blocks from that fabulous quilt, 365 Sampler...and I just can't. I know I won't keep up with it, so if you are interested in these blocks, let me know, and I will send them to you!! If there are more than one person interested, I will have a drawing.
