I've been wrasslin' just a wee bit too much on this little baby quilt, but now I can say the flimsy is done! In an attempt to just get on with it, I put this black and white alpha border on...
I got some great advice from Sharon at Vroomans Quilts about dividing the center (thanks Sharon!), so I took the borders off, made off-center slashes, and added a dark blue sash.
After I bordered the whole piece I was thinking I should have bordered the center block, but too late - I was on my way outta there!
I added a green outer border...
this looks like a done deal to me! I didn't want to make a meal out of this little quilt, lest the recipient have to pack it into his college gear. Although the center would have looked better slashed in regular slices. I must have been in one of my creative moods... whatever.
The family has a dog but I think Nicholas will have fun looking at the playful monkeys, whilygigs,
apple pies, stars, puppy prints, chickens, dots... sew forth and sew on.
I'll be participating in a fun die cut scrap-along sponsored by Ebony at Love Bug Studios. This is just the thing to use my new GO cutter and it starts April 1, check it out!
Have a great Thursday, be careful on the ice if you have any. Sew forth and sew on til later!
