Crossing The Border and Mitered Corners

Borders are cut, sewn on and corners mitered.

Now… once I receive the backing fabric I ordered on-line from JoAnn’s TWO WEEKS AGO, I can start quilting my quilt top. Quilt Top. That’s feels good to say. Quilt Top. My Quilt Top is finished!!

What else have I been doing? Reading. A LOT. Studying my quilt books. And looking at quilting You Tube Videos. I bet I have watched 50 of them. Techniques, tips, types of blocks. And I have been sorting through my wee bit of fabric stash. Playing with it. Trying to decide which ones to use for my next quilt.

I took a few quilting breaks and made more plant hangers like the green one I told you about. Three of them. White, mauve and cream. Photos coming soon. Need to edit them. The plan is to make a few more and then start designing a new one.

Thank you so much to those who purchased my macrame plant hanger pattern. Really appreciate it. (And to Betty, who bought the green plant hanger.) 😀

    Yipeee! Got an idea how you’re going to quilt it?

      I do!! Stitch in the Ditch for the straight lines and MAYBE go around the curved pieces in circles. I am going to practice first on a circle to see if I can control my circular stitching. If not, then just in the ditch.

    WOW!!! the border sure makes a difference! It is beautiful. I found the top of the quilt my Mom gave me.

    I can hardly wait to receive my planter. It is so beautiful online. I have a plant to put in it.

      Thanks so much, Betty!!

      Hubby has been staring at my quilt top. When he does that to any of my crafts, it means he likes it. 😀

      Glad you found your quilt top from your Mom. You’ll have to send me a picture so I can see it.

      I have your plant hanger boxed and ready to go. Will mail it off in the morning. Let me know when it arrives.

      Thanks again!!

      Thanks, Debra.

      After reading your comment on “where is the sewn blocks photo”, I thought I had better get to posting a new photo. LOL!! Thanks for the nudge. 😀
