Done is Better

The quilt top made from salvaged blocks is done. I ended up putting a plain fabric border on because when I added blocks with a different pattern, they detracted from the main quilt blocks.
Looks pretty horrible in good light. I really hope those
wavy parts tighten up a bit after it's quilted then washed.
I found a use for the blocks I made for the border. It took about a day to put them together.
It is a lap quilt size. It is not my best effort, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out since I never really had a plan and just started sewing leftover bits together.

I can't afford to have these quilted right now, so they'll just get tucked away in a tub and they'll wait until finances improve.

Now I just have one more quilt project kicking around my sewing room: the Queen's Jewels quilt. I'm hoping my motivation will carry me through to finishing that one too.

However, it's sunny today, so I've got to do some shed painting.


  1. I think they're gorgeous! It sure feels good to finish what we start, doesn't it?
    Seize the sunshine!

  2. Well if it bothers you, I'll take it.

    1. My sister-in-law really likes it. I think she is going to take it.
