Yes, I never seem to learn! Once again I bought fabric without making sure I had the border fabrics. By the time I finally was ready to add borders, fabrics were sold out every where I went so I had to use 2 different fabrics for the borders. Of course, they are from the same line and they do look good together but maybe I should have mitered the corners. (Again I am second guessing my decisions. Does anyone else do that?)
You can see how they look at the corners. I do love this quilt!
I am pretty sure the graduating young woman who is receiving this will love it too.
I also finished this great Churn Dash quilt in mostly Lexington by Moda fabrics in that lovely indigo blue color. I just love this. I put the blocks up on my design wall, mixed and mixed and placed and replaced but still came up with lots of the same fabrics close to each other. I love this quilt too. (Does anyone ever NOT LIKE a quilt they make?) Sometimes I have a hard time giving away a quilt........until I see the joy on someone's face when they get it.
Now to take them to a quilter.
I'm heading out today to use some of the gift certificates I got at retirement for more fabric. I have a couple more quilts in the planning that I just have to make. I wonder if I will ever get to the point when I am done planning quilts or making quilts or just going to the fabric store to feel the fabrics?
I sure hope not!
Happy Quilting! Lynda
