Note: The UFO link up will be Friday.
Today I want to share this.
I couldn't decide what I wanted to work on Saturday but when I walked in the sewing room I saw the blocks for this on the design wall. I didn't need another UFO so I got to work and had this top done in a few hours. The original plan was to make this veteran's quilt size (about 48 x 60). That would have only allowed me a couple of inches for a border. With the gradient I really felt that this needed a wide border. This fabric was dyed as one long length so adding the border was EASY! The quilt will be about 56 x 70 and will probably be a QOV. I really like the way this one turned out.
I was on a roll and found this clock print (on sale years ago) and made the back.
I even cut the binding. It's still a new UFO but it's only awaiting quilting and binding.
The best part of the weekend is that I didn't start anything else! I worked on my wall a bit and started putting the tax info together. I want to have that done and delivered to the accountant before Mom and I leave for Lancaster next Tuesday.
