Borders on my Hope Valley quilt…(Fabric by Denyse Schmidt, pattern “Off Kilter” by Heather Mulder Peterson).
Had to share a close-up of the corner fabric…I’d originally intended this fabric for the four corners but was an inch short and almost used the side border floral instead….SOOO glad I waited for more of my initial choice…just that little bit of additional contrast made a wonderful difference…this is one of those quilts that I just love…hopefully after it’s quilted and washed I can get some great pictures.
I did get a lot of sewing in this week…my February Schnibbles is complete…can’t wait to share it…and I also nearly finished another quilt I can’t yet share. I pieced two quilt backs yesterday–I procrastinate on quilt backs for some reason–does anyone else do this? Any suggestions? One of my goals for 2010 is to piece my quilt backs immediately after finishing the tops. Oh, and another goal is patience…if I could just learn to patiently wait for the “future collections” on the United Notions page I think life would be much easier. I’m pretty confident about accomplishing the quilt back goal…the patience…not so much! Have a great day!
