I was at work yesterday, so, as usual, this is a day late. But that's better than being 7 years late---yep, that's when this was started and everything was done but the borders. Then 3 borders were added 2 years ago, and finally, Sunday afternoon, the last border was sewn on and all four corners mitered. Now, I ask you "WHAT took so long?!?"
I was gonna applique big flowers on the border as per the pattern, but have finally decided on a recipient for this one, and Uncle Wayne won't care if they aren't there!! (He will also get it a lot sooner!!) Now I have to figure out a quilting pattern.
This is the view I saw after arriving home from my Bible study:
My bathroom renovation. My walk in closet door is in this room, so a sheet is nailed over the opening to hopefully keep all the nasty dust out, and DH is running a fan to blow it out the window (theoretically) !
I am so envious of Vicki! Hers is done!! This tiled soaking tub will be replaced with a shower, and our tiny corner shower will be replaced with a sink and vanity for DH. That means I won't have to share the one you see on the right, which will also be replaced. Oofta! Am not looking forward to the work, but will be great when finished. Thank goodness we have another bathroom!.This may take awhile with DH doing the work and his work schedule being what it is.
And two of the six sides of the inner border are on--5 miters to go! Also got the outer border today--6 more miters. I should have the 60 degree mitered corners down by the time this is done.....and then there is the binding!!!! That makes 18!!!!!!!!!!
I am married to a wonderful man and have two adult children-both males. The eldest made me a mother-in-law to a very sweet lady. The youngest is far away and single. I work part time at a quilt shop, which feeds my fabric addiction.
