The fabric I brought for the border doesn't work (it'll go on the back!) so we are heading to a local quilt shop. Oh so sad, hunh??!!
This quilt was made via a swap. We all made half square triangles as well as swapped strips do I didn't have to make all the components. It did take forever to cut them apart, press and then sew but I'm very happy with the finished product!! We are calling that Under the Big Top. My friend Lori posted instructions a couple of years ago. So this top was two years in the making!! Not so bad.
My other completed ufo has been in the works for more than 10 years!! I saw this quilt in Houston in 2002. The only reason I know that is because I took a picture of the quilt and had the picture printed and the date is in the corner! Remember when we printed pictures and the date was in the corner!!
It is a Sue Garman design although I never got the pattern. I figured it out myself.
Truth be told there's supposed to be several more borders including a round of pinwheels but I decided it was done enough so I am calling it finished!! Ten years??? Glad it's done!!
I'm going to show you what others have been sewing later today! We are off to get fabric and sweet corn to bring back to my hubby!! Gotta love Wisconsin sweet corn this time of year! My dear friend Debbie had corn and a Spotted Cow for me (not literally) my first night! What a great friend!
