The bottom border for "Contentment" is hand-stitched, soaked and pressed, but not trimmed and attached yet. I might wait until all four borders are done before I trim anything. My little mathematical brain is a little distracted right now...better to be safe then sorry!
These pictures aren't very good...I have both tops I am bordering laid out on the pool table as I ponder things. My pieces of design wall are leaning up against furniture in my bedroom, upstairs. I have got to figure out where and how to have my design wall down where the quilt cave is!
And for my second project sprawling on the pool table, you won't believe one of my skinny stop borders I am employing in "Life's Little Treasures."
Some of you have been making these blocks in a larger size, one at-a-time, one day-at-a-time in 2016. I just finished making 116 little versions of this hand-appliqued block in four days! Now I just need to stitch them into strips and apply them to the quilt! I will reveal that in the next post!
I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving!
Our little family will be in two pieces...Steve is near Philadelphia for two weeks spending some time with his Dad, and Riley will be home from college for a handful of days with me in Alabama. It will be sad not to be together, but I am happy that Steve gets to spend some good time with his Dad.
Riley and I will be on opposite sides of the couch as we watch the annual epic battle between our Alma Maters on Saturday, the "Iron Bowl." With the National Championship on the line, I will probably root for Auburn in the first half, then switch to Alabama in the second half. I just want Auburn to play well...and Alabama coach Nick Saben to sweat a bit...
The game starts at 10:00 AM CST on Saturday morning...what is up with that?!? That's like, breakfast time...
