Slow and Steady

Nancy left a message on my morning blog today to remind me that slow and steady gets the job done.  Yep, it does.  Today I put on 5 border strips.  Three of the pieced borders and two of the floral borders. Tomorrow, if I can, I will put the last two floral borders on. Yippee!  The end is in sight. I might have gotten all the floral borders done except that corner half square triangle was sewn on wrong and I had to take it off and redo it on all four corners.  Luckily only two of the border strips had actually been sewn to the quilt. (also, the right hand border above is just laid down, not cut to correct size or sewn.) 

Before I started the floral border I laid it out on the bed it is going on.  Yipee, it looks like it will fit nicely.  (Now, fingers are crossed that it doesn't shrink up with the quilting.)  

I've got a piece of fabric from my stash that should work well as the backing although I'll have to add to it as I'm sure I don't have enough fabric.  I'm hoping to use the gold for the binding as it will go with both the front and the back. 

Dinner is almost ready so I'm off to get it served.  Nothing hard tonight as I sewed until 6:45 or so this evening!  

Happy Quilting All!  


  1. It looks great, Bonnie. I'll have to remember that corner treatment because I really like it.

  2. Oh..those borders are going to steal away from the middle of the quilt they are that gorgeous! Yay for you!! Here are some sunglasses for ya for that bright light coming in from the end of that long, long tunnel!!


I am pleased you've come to visit. I hope you will leave a comment.
