Notice anything different about my Butterscotch Scrap Jar Stars?
Yep, they are done and I have the borders on and I am very very happy with this quilt. But did you notice that there are 9 less blocks than there were on Monday? On Monday my plans were to have 5 rows of 5 blocks. I came home after the guild meeting and sewed my little heart out, getting the last row on and adding the extra rounds to finish off the 9 patches. And I went to bed.....
and when I came downstairs on Tuesday morning I suddenly realized that if I was going to add the generous sized pumpkiny borders that I wanted, this quilt was going to be a behemoth! I plan to use it on a double bed. It would have dragged on the ground. What was I thinking??? So I removed a row from the bottom and a row from the side and re-did the round that finishes the nine patches. Now with the lovely pumpkiny borders it will be the perfect size for my bed. Happy happy happy!
This is one lovely corner....
and a bit of a close up of the lovely pumpkiny border and a chicken, You didn't think I'd forget the chickens did you???
I'm going to drop this off to my long arm quilter, Cass, today and I'm hoping that by the time I get it back there will be cool, crisp Fall weather. I'm probably delusional on that count, but I'm still looking forward to autumn. I love the Fall season!
So now I'm off and running - take quilt to Cass, take younger son to lunch and then to volunteer job, take myself to IKEA to pick up some of the small items older son wants for new house, take myself back to pick up younger son, take younger son and me to meet up with older son for dinner and another trip to IKEA for the bigger items. Run run run as fast as you can, you can't catch me cause I'll be driving really fast - ok I really will be doing the speed limit, don't want any tickets.
