I don’t know why it is that many of my quilts cease to progress when it’s time for borders to be put on. But if one of my quilts gets stuck this will be the spot that it gets stuck at. And there it will sit on a hanger in my sewing room. Well, the last couple of days I’ve decided to move some of these border lacking quilts along. I’m a big fan of pieced borders. I like the effect they have so for my kaleidoscope quilt I randomly pieced bits of fabric and made a border. It was a lot of fun and I think it fit in nicely with the scrappy effect of the quilt. For my scrappy star I had the borders mostly done. I just needed to make them a little longer because I decided it was time for me to learn how to do mitered corners. I used this tute and all though the first was not perfect by the end I was feeling pretty good about mitered corners and wondering why I had put off learning how for so long.
Now if you’ve been reading this blog for very long you know that I’m trying to make/collect a lot of quilts for Happy Chemo. You might have also picked up on the fact that my sister, Julie, and her hubby, Eric, are the geniuses behind Cosmo Cricket. Well, they very generously donated a bunch of fabric for Happy Chemo Quilts.
Here is some of their Snorkel line. This is one of my favorites.
A bunch of Tailor Made. And some Jitterbug. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Julie and Eric, you’re the best!!!
Hey my sister just let me know she recieved some of her new line and she is having a giveaway on her blog. If you want to pop on over and have a chance at some Cosmo Cricket of your own.
