Almost there

But I'm not going to get any further on this quilt for a few days. One of the problems with not having a stash that includes yardage, is that when it's time for borders, there isn't enough of anything! So, I got the whole top together up to the white border. I've decided that this will be a gift and needs blue borders...of course I don't have enough blue to make a border! So, I've ordered 2 yards of each of these fabrics from one of Judy's favorite places...Big Horn Quilts. Hopefully they'll arrive sometime this week and I can get this finished and quilted before November. So, what to work on next???

That will be turning out really nice. Those blues will go really well with the other subtle colors.

Pretty fabrics you've picked!

Both of them will look great with your blocks. :)

That's so pretty and soft looking! Are you going to put a breaker border of the darker one and a wider border of the light one? And bind with the darker one? Just curious.

Great job, and very far ahead of me.

Pastels may not be you, but it's a beautiful quilt nevertheless. Either of these fabrics is going to make a great border. I do like the colors and fabrics you've chosen for your next one - very fall-like!

Finn said...

The top looks great Carolyn!! Like you, I'm NOT a pastel lover...so your second one is even better!!
And I think your choice for border is just right..*VBS* Hugs, Finn

Your Churn Dash quilt looks very good, and so do your new Churn Dash blocks. You have been productive :-)
