Yesterday I decided to keep working on the OP quilt. I am really getting to like this quilt a LOT.. I think this is the first time I have made a lap quilt that didn't have a home before it was made. I have always had a reason to make a quilt before. Either it was a Christmas or Birthday present or a new baby... This one is all because of Pat Sloan..
I decided on 3 inch sashing and borders. I got all the sashing done, but the borders are longer than 40" on the sides so I need more Kona White so I don't have to piece the borders. I will go either today or tomorrow and get more. I don't usually have a problem piecing the borders, but with white it would look less appealing with seams in the borders.
I was taking the photo above and had to put the quilt on my bedroom floor as it is too wide to hang on the design wall. Even though I am 5'9" I still had to stand on the bed and with a white bedspread I pulled it down to stand on the sheets instead..
Imagine my surprise when I found this on my bed....
My Mom won this in a raffle and gave it to me as orange isn't her color. Because I keep it white side up so it doesn't show through my bedspread I had forgotten all about it!! LOL
I'm gonna be retreat packing the next few days, but I'll still be blog reading and writing... I will have lots of show-n-tell when I get back next Monday...
