perspective


Gee, did this quilt give me some grief.

I'm so glad that I posted about the issues I was having. Your responses, suggestions and ideas were just the ticket.

No sooner had I put this project aside than I found a bag of leftover strips from making these blocks mixed up with another project.

There were just enough strips to make a border on the quilt and I really liked the idea of extending the background fabric. 

Problem solved!


The top is finished now and with the long arm quilter. Thank you all so very much for your support and encouragement.
