|The challenge with the border was that I only had a yard of the black grunge dot to work with! I spent quite a bit of time sewing patches to insert into the borders to make them fit. There was about an inch of the dot fabric left when I was done!|
|Loaded up and ready to quilt. I found some gray swirly fabric for the back in my stash! Total coup.|
|This is scrappy goodness! I loved the mix of blues and the reds just pop.|
|The dark backing really shows off the quilting pattern.|
|There's a lot of appliqué in my future. This is only ONE border...|
|That's not the sun through the trees, it is the huge fuel moon!|
It was another cool moment of a lifetime that Mr W snored through. He had to get up early to go see his Mom in SC. She is in the hospital, and he is going over to see what is being done and how she is doing. You may remember that his Mom is 97 years old, so every illness or fall is a scary moment for us.
