No quilting today...resting my legs...
It really feels good to be back to my old self! Being productive in my sewing room and the quilting studio makes me so happy! At the end of the day I love being able to say "Look what I did"!
I bought this quilt top off of Ebay last year and it lacked having the outer pieced border sewn on. A few of the small blocks had to be added to the length of the border strips so I got it out of the drawer this evening and commenced to finishing and getting it ready to be quilted. I found out in a hurry why this was never finished and then sold on Ebay for as little as it was sold for. The pieced border is too large for the top on 3 sides. Someone didn't do their math correctly or didn't square up the Gate Latch blocks as they went. One side out of 4 fit correctly. But all is not lost because it doesn't look too terribly bad and it is going to be quilted regardless!
I think it will look great as a tablecloth in our breakfast area! The colors are perfect and the Gate Latch pattern was my Granny Ida's favorite so what could be better than that!
