In order to finished my Autumn Star quilt I needed to buy some fabric for a final border.
We had a road trip from Portland to Warrnambool to visit Ann and Barbara at Periwinkle Patchwork.
Duh, I didn't take any photos of the shop, sorry! Hmmm, might have been because I was too busy talking!
Anyway I got this great stripe (bargain it was on sale) which was perfect for this quilt.
I managed to cut and sew on the two borders for this quilt while we were away, so it is now a finished flimsy.
Then a few days later in Adelaide (at Widebacks) I got this very appropriate fabric for a backing!
Ann from Periwinkle pulled all the reds off the shelf from me until we settled on this lovely fabric as a border for my Red and White Dresden plate quilt. But I haven't cut or sewed the borders yet.
However that didn't stop me buying the perfect backing at Widebacks. This red is a Primitive Gatherings print and all the "white" prints in my Dresden plates are from a Primitive Gatherings jelly roll, so very pleased with this match.
Happy quilting Sue.
