Set together


I've been busy today setting this together. Had to lay it out on the deck in order to have enough room to photograph. When I get the outside borders on I will use my stand to get a straight on shot. I'm very pleased with all of it. Will start sewing on my last 2 borders tonight. It's hard to believe that I'm getting low on circles to use on my borders but I did just use 144 of them on the 4 corner blocks (may need my quilting friends again to baste circles). LOL Probably will regret having so many when I'm hand quilting around each of them.....but I really like the extra punch they give to this quilt.

  6. At the end of this marathon quilt you will deserve a laurel wreath - do you want to applique that as well?? I know you could! Really beautiful.
