Three things to be happy about
(1) being in the know
(2) TV show marathons
(3) chunky jewelry
It's always great to finish up a UFO, this one has been hanging around for awhile. I looked back over my posts to when I started this quilt - 4 years! You can read the initial post here.
It occurred to me Saturday that this project qualifies for the American Patchwork & Quilting’s "It all Adds Up" Quilt-Along.
I wasn't too sure about my choice for that inner border - still not 100% sure, maybe I should have gone with gold - but it's a done deal now!
The peacocks just nestled right into the outer border. They weren't fussy cut but hey, that's fine with me!
I would have lost too much fabric otherwise; my goal was to use up the fabric, not create scraps by fussy cutting!
So that's my story and I'm sticking with it.
Today will be a no-sew day for me, I have to take my sewing machine to Hancock Fabrics so the repairman can look at it. I have a very disobedient foot pedal that sometimes wants to keep sewing when I take my foot off. I mean I'm stomping and banging on it to make it stop - annoying as heck when I'm trying to adjust my seam! Anyway, I'm hoping he can replace the pedal while I wait, that Hancock's is over 20 miles away.
Have a great Monday, I hope your team won the Superbowl, sew forth and sew on til later...
