Sides make the meal. I quite like a good salad and French fries. Sides make a rag tag bunch of blocks start to look like a quilt.
At long last this project is showing some real progress. I borrowed this idea from crazymomquilts as most other versions involved cutting the blocks. After five years stitching these together there was no way I was cutting into them. Needs a good press and a bit of a trim.
Meanwhile, on the other side. . . .
Yikes - what a mess!
Oh boy! I'd like to have those onion rings! I love the colors in your blocks, and that's going to be a beautiful quilt. I'm glad you tried that method for the borders; it looks really good! ---"Love"ReplyDelete
Oh, I love a great mess!! Loving all those fabulous stars. What a great idea for the border. Sides are always an excellent idea. =)ReplyDelete
I like those those borders, too. Dont you hate it when you make whole blocks and the designer says "whack off half"? Such a waste! Those papers will come out faster than you think, though when I removed the papers from my Arcadia Avenue, I had feline assistance...somewhat unwanted, but none the less, she was there! The quilt is gorgeous!ReplyDelete
I love this one, the colors and the design. It will be so pretty!ReplyDelete
Your sides are so much nicer than cutting into the pieced blocks. This is going to be a stunning quilt!ReplyDelete
