I made these forty string blocks into this top, and finished putting borders on it yesterday.

This was intended as a  new donation quilt, but it turned out a little small for that, at 48″ x  72″, especially since I only had a yard of the border fabric and was determined to make it work, so I think I’ll keep it for my shop.  I have an idea for quilting it all over with leaves to go with the borders.

Now I’m going to put together the backing and at least get this sandwiched today.  Also, someone should clean up this studio.  It’s all mine, but it’s tiny and things are beginning to pile up.  And spill over.  And the orange fabric needs to go away before I’m tempted to start another quilt with orange in it!


What are you working on?

I’m linking up with  WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.

  1. Seriously? I love that orange fabric! And it goes perfectly with that pretty gray, I just love it! 🙂
