Sunday was working on border units. 
They are a little tricky getting the solid theme fabric to go in the correct direction along with the pieced part attached the right way for the side of the quilt they will attach to.  There are two more units to finish before measurements take place for the inner border.
The inner border will be solid green and then we will see what happens next.  I am looking to have this quilt finish around 40" x 60".

Today is my sister-in-laws birthday.  Wishing you the best Barbara 🎂🎂🎂!




Sunday Stash Report, July 22, 32018


Not to much to share, but come back tomorrow and you will see how this fabric will be used.  For this week there is an add for it.  Soon it will be counted as used...

With the extension of the entry deadline to July 31st, I have entered three quilts.
Some of you have seen Kastway when it was being worked a couple of years ago.  Kerry will have it quilted in time for the show.  
The other two are already done.  Kurry is the largest of the three.  
Kongure is part of the Sunshine group entry.  The San Diego Quilt Show is late in September.

This is the start of the John Deere commissioned quilt for a two year old boy.  Violet Anne has this coming to her in August when I travel to Maryland.  The piece of yardage on the right is the back.  Mom and I came together with our stash for this one so far.  

The fabric on the left will be used for the binding.  I'll be cutting it on the bias for the diagonal affect.  The pieces to the right are components of the pieced border that will go around the project.  I'm working towards a crib size or 40" x 60".

The photo above shows the finished look of the pieced border and the many solid borders to build up the size to what I want.  Kerry is lined up for quilting with a very cute tractor design.  I will be sharing the pieced border next time.
