Even though I thought I’d made the half square triangles for the border, I haven’t found them and wanted to go ahead and get this UFO finished so I added strips of the tone on tone batik, and then the striped batik, with the background yellow batik in between those borders.
It’s 61″ x 82″ and I thought about quilting it today . . we’ll see what the day holds.
My stash is so perfect! Really . . I love it! It’s sometimes hard to use it but look at the fabric I found for the backing. Perfect, huh?
Sometimes (but not other times), it bothers me to sew two strips of fabric together and have the pattern not match up. That may be because I used to hang my own wall paper and I fiddled with it til every little spring and leaf matched up perfectly. But with my backings, I’m not going to fiddle with them so I just stuck a strip of batik down the middle.
And, while I was on a roll, I pieced and ironed my binding. Now all I have to do is quilt it. Yep, maybe I’ll do it today but you know what is happening today? I have to go to the dentist. Oh, how I hate that! I should quilt this top and not think about the dentist, shouldn’t I? Or, maybe I should just cancel my dentist appointment and quilt the top. 🙂
