Happy Hour Quilt Top
My latest project is now almost a top.....it looks much lighter in the photograph than I think it is in real life, but that could be because the dog sitting in the top right hand corner is (off) white, making it appear lighter!!! Damn dog?
I will now add a 6" finished border in the dark blue fabric, it has turned out to be quite large (81" x 72" before the final border) and rather than stress about the size and thinking about reducing the overall size I have decided to have it professionally quilted! That way I can confidently make it a large as I like!
I haven't decided on binding, I have enough scraps to bind it using all the fabrics, or I may use the blue from the final border....still thinking!
This project has been very enjoyable, the design is so simple and takes advantage of the lovely fabrics to great effect.....IMHO that is!
