No, I’m not talking about Jon & Kate. I don’t watch the show but they surely have been on the news lately. We saw a show about them when the babies were maybe 1 year old but just haven’t kept up with them. I hope everything works out with Jon & Kate.
But, the 8 I’m talking about are the 8 borders on this quilt.
It’s 91″ x 103″. I thought I would never finish it. As soon as I finished the pieced border, which was the 4th border, I began trying to figure out how I could leave off a border. I was real tempted to make the 6th border about a 5″ orange border and be done but I knew I’d be kicking myself for not making it according to the pattern. I hope to get it quilted tomorrow, get the binding sewn on and work on the handwork this weekend. The wedding is a week from Sunday so I’m 100% sure it will be done before then.
The last three quilts I’ve done (dad’s, one for a new fabric/magazine and this one, have all been about this size. I’m so ready for some smaller, quicker quilts.
Want to know what’s funny? The next three quilts I have lined up to start do not have stars! I think I’ll take two aspirin and go to bed . . something must be wrong with me! 🙂
