Another Quilt Top finished for the Group

Donna can you please mark me off as completing my quilt top.

With work committments slowing down now, I've had the pleasure of getting back to my sewing machine.


The borders have been attached with a little green peeper to break it up. I've got a lot of left over fabrics so I think I will make a scrappy border once I get back to the quilting. I've also got some more blocks stitched that I want to turn into a little Xmas hanging.

Your quilt is so beautiful! What a great feeling it is to get a project completed! And I love your little green "peeper" to break things up, great idea!

I've now noticed that I should have made one of the borders very wide. Not sure if I should change it?

It's lovely... so cheerful... personally I think the border is fine but at the end of the day you need to be happy with the result...

That is simply beautiful...love the green.

I didn't leave my border as wide, but I was happy with the end result. I don't think it hurts to tweak things a little and put your own spin on it. It looks great :-)

Looking good...love the green pepper...and the borders look fine to me...

Fiona @ Dragonfly-Crafts said...

Thank you to everyone who commented... I think I'll leave the borders as I'm sure I have wadding to suit. I also have more green fabric to use as the binding. Can't wait to get back to it.
