So then I had to find a border and luckily attached to the wadding leftovers of a big quilt was some blue fabric that worked well. I like being able to use another couple of blocks in the corners when the border fabric is a bit short!I then moved on to pre-cut 5" transport fabric squares, so made lots of four patches. The leftovers from the Maisy quilt, are bright and worked perfectly as sashing. Just needed cornerstones to match, so I dug around and found the scraps from my Bug in a Bottle quilt! Hmm bugs and things that go!?
And this border is the leftovers from the backing of my Blue Twister quilt! Which I also used to cut binding for the leftover small twister blocks, which I turned into a table centre mat and a mug rug!
So I quickly quilted these up and once the walking foot is on I couldn't stop!
I decided to finally bite the bullet and just quilt the reproduction hexagon table runner, even though I am not sure how to tackle the edges. I suspect they might just get cut straight, but I have a bit of tidying up to do from my free motion quilting (e.g. unpicking) before I worry about that!
There was one appropriate backing in my stash for the kids quilt, but I am pretty much out of backings, so off to the Quilt show today to see if I can nab a bargain back for the other top.
Happy quilting, Sue SA.
