Borders finally on!

Seems like I haven't been down in my sewing room for several days now. I have been on a quick trip to Illinois to visit my daughter and her family tho. It was a quick 4 day vacation but so much fun. I had made a white dress for my granddaughter's baptism and it looked so cute on her. After putting in the zipper tho I really remembered why I don't sew clothing much anymore. I didn't even get a picture of it. I'll stick with quilts! I finally got the border on my Pinwheel quilt. Never noticed how wrinkley the top was until I looked at the picture tho. Makes me want to pull and tug and iron until it is nice and smooth!
Border on the Disappearing 4 Patch too. I chose a nice bright pink. It is only about 38 inches square and will be perfect for a baby gift. Now to get them both quilted.

I am about half way done with my Snowball quilt too. Maybe next week I will have that done to share with you.

I really admire those of you who can blog several times a week and have so many beautiful things to share. I really enjoy all the inspiration I get from reading your blogs. Keep it up!

Happy Quilting! Lynda

I love your pinwheel quilt! Don't worry, it'll smooth out once you are quilting it. I'm dying to try the disappearing four patch. It looks so much fun to make and the result is stunning.

After reading your comment about the zipper it just reminds me why I know longer make clothes - lol! I hated zippers and button holes.
Your pinwheel quilt is wonderful! And your D4P is so bright and cheery :)

Both quilts are going to be great ones, I never gave a thought to the wrinkles! The colors on both are so soft and sweet.
I too, wish I could post more, but that workkeeps getting in the way, right, Lynda? I'll tune in to your posts whenever they come. :-}pokey
