It’s border time today and I’ve been sewing my burgundy and white squares together to make a border for the quilt destined for our caravan. They started off like this.
Lots of little twosies
And have grown to this, long lines of burgundy and white checks.
Growing ever longer
This week I’m working on UFO number One on my List of Six, and this is the final border on the quilt. I should really lay it all out, see how long I need to make each side, and decide on how I’m going to do the corners. Decisions, decisions.
The interim name for this quilt is my Caravan Quilt, as I did most of the stitchery blocks while on holiday in our caravan over a period of time. We would travel in the mornings, do a little sight seeing, and then relax later in the day under a shady tree. The blokes enjoyed a cool beer each, while I happily stitched away with a coffee to hand. The flowers and leaves were then coloured using fabric pens, a first for me.
I’m sure I’ll come up with a more appropriate name before this top is finished – just have to put my thinking cap on.
