Blues Update...Border on..

This is it...I was going to do a pieced Jacob's Ladder border, but then decided it might be too much...plus to be honest, I'm just about all blued out..!.....

I just want to finish it now, and put it away till the time comes to gift it..

Tomorrow hopefully I'll have time to pin it ready for quilting...I think I'll just cross-hatch quilt it through the Irish Chain and Stars....then I think scrappy binding should soften the dark blue border and finish it off nicely...


Take care...♥

  1. Julia what a great finish!!! I think your decision to keep the borders plain is a good one as there is enough going on in the body of the quilt to keep the eyes' attention!!!! You should be very proud of this mammoth effort!!!!!

  10. That quilt turned out great. I can't believe how quickly you put it together. It took longer for the fabrics just to arrive than to make. It's a great pattern and I like the simple borders.

  14. Gorgeous quilt! Great finishing approach with the borders and the scrapping binding. I think wrapping this one up with your quilting plan is a good one, too. We sure had to go through a lot to "do blue" didn't we? (well… we=you) hugs, *karendianne. who was in on the patiently waiting
