A Finish for Friday


I've had so many projects on my list lately that I made a goal to finish up something every week. For this week, at least, I'm on track. Yesterday I put the outer border on my Bee in My Bonnet row quilt. The polka dot on aqua from Bonnie & Camille's Vintage Modern seemed to be the perfect choice for the outer border; luckily, I was still able to find some to order here.


The tulip row is definitely my favorite although I love every block in this quilt! I have to admit I kept putting off making the pieced border, thinking it would take a lot of time, but it was actually a fun, simple border to construct. I'm going to piece the back today and get this quilted!



It seems like a perfect finish for the beginning of April! Additionally, every single piece of fabric for this quilt (other than the yard and a half I ordered for the outer border) came from my scrap bins (fabrics are from Ruby, Bliss, Vintage Modern, Marmalade, and Happy Go Lucky--all by Bonnie & Camille for Moda). The background fabric even came from my Bella Bleached White scrap box. Thank you so much Lori for this fun project!

Thanks so very much for stopping by!

It's beautiful! My favourite of all of the row alongs that I've seen!

Kate said...

Looks perfect!

Lori said...

I finished mine this week too. My border took longer than it should of. My fault. I made my rows a little wider and had to recalculate the border block measurements. Even so, I love it. And it all came from my stash (except the backing) too.

Patty D from NC said...

It came out great. From watching your progress and others, I decided to make a mini version (just getting started). Tulip row is my favorite as well.

Sherri, your quilt is absolutely delightful and adorable and I agree with you that the Vintage Modern Aqua dots was perfect for the border. I've chosen the same fabric to border my grand daughters quilt...there is just something about that fabric that cries "Border Fabric" to me. Love it! Hugs...

Love your quilt. Just left a review of your book on Amazon. Hope that that helps sell it. I love the book too.

Beautiful!!! And the fabric for the border is perfect for the quilt: it frames it while allowing the rows to take center stage. Congrats on such a great finish!! Hugs, Helen in Healdsburg

I love how it turned out. The borders are wonderful, love the combo of the solid and dot. I'm kind of wishing I had gone with a less busy border now. I'm just about ready to stitch onmy scallops. I need to get it to Diana to quilt! Yours is so wonderful, I'm a little pea green!
