I began cutting out the border fabrics last night. I had to get my mind off thinking about MTD. It’s going to be some time before I stop hearing the sound of his collar jingling. That was always the noise I’d hear when I woke up or entered a room. He would get up, stretch and shake…ready to go wherever we were going.
So here we are at the border.
I am completely out of neutrals now and had to go to the quilt shop to pick up more. I’ve had to shop 5 times over the course of this quilt believe it or not! I know, so much for it being totally about scraps you have on hand. Here in the above photo I’m trying to plan out the mix of reds and greens so I don’t have duplicates in the borders. Notice there are no neutrals?
I ended up picking up about 7 additional neutral prints. The last group from last night are in the wash but below is one that I’m going to use for the spacing border.
I think it looks good and will blend in well.
I think this border will go very quickly and I’m hoping to be sandwiching it all together this weekend.
I can’t wait to use my Eazy Quilter II to machine quilt it! That is something I’ve had for 2 years and haven’t used yet!
