Sunday

I got the basement all cleaned up and put back together today, after I finished my quilt top. I wasn’t sure just how I would finish it, or how big I would make it, but this is where I stopped. I wanted it a little bigger after the white strips were added to the top and bottom, and I wanted some more color in it, so I added strips of the white and flowers. I then added another wider strip of white, but decided I didn’t like it, and I also decided that the quilt was big enough.  SEW, this is the quilt top. It measures roughly, 50” by 65”….I don’t remember the exact numbers…… 005 (2)                            …..and this is the top, backing and binding. I decided to use the same white and flowers for the back, because I had another whole sheet that is plenty big, and I also decided to use the same white and flowers for the binding. I decided that the flowers on the binding would add more color filler on the floral border itself, and be a good finish, still keeping the quilt simple, like it is supposed to be. What an easy quilt it was to put together! I hope maybe this coming Friday, or weekend, I can get it quilted and finished.   006 (2)                      001 (2)

I hope you all had a great weekend, and I pray you have a safe, happy, and healthy upcoming week.

Thanks for sharing. Love the quilt and your site, but especially love the Goldwing. My hubby and I ride a Harley Dynaglide. We love to go out and explore. I can easily see a setup like yours in our future.
Happy Living!
