I fell in love with this border fabric by Moda called Crazy 8 that I talked about in my last blog. Found lots of fabrics that matched, not all of them Crazy 8, and here is the finished quilt top. It went together quite easily and quickly. It always amazes me that I can put all the blocks up on my design wall, mix and match and move and change until I'm sure it is perfect. And then.....when I sew them together and lay it out on the floor I find all kinds of like fabrics next to each other! How does that happen? My friend, Janine, and I laugh all the time about how careful we are in positioning each block and still they come out the way they want. I do like this quilt tho and can't wait to start on the next one.
Oh, my quilt bee that I haven't been able to go to for the last year or so (because they meet on a day that I work) has changed days and now I can go again. I am so excited. I have missed getting to talk and laugh with this fun and talented group of women. I've already got my sewing project ready to take so I can sew, sew, sew while enjoying their company.
Have fun quilting. Lynda
