A glimpse into my quilting journey - projects, tips, techniques, and more.
Saturday, April 21, 2012
I had great plans for my Friday night sew-in. I got off to a later start than I hoped, but I managed to finish my April colour challenge top.
After that, I started sewing purple strings for the border of Orca Bay. I sewed, and I sewed, and I sewed some more. Then this morning, I finished sewing, and laid out the borders.
Apparently I sewed a bit too much, because this pile of string rectangles are left over. I'll have to find a use for them. Maybe on the back of the quilt - they might help me stretch a backing piece to fit the quilt later.
First I did a narrow black border to frame the quilt, then added the purple. And Orca Bay is complete! I'm still hoping to complete the other 2 items on my list - pillow cases for ConKerr Cancer and my Monday Mystery. More of a sew-in weekend for me. A great way to spend a rainy day, in any event.
