a beautiful start to the day :)
but I had plans that involved a little trip in the car ...
well it was a beautiful morning! I went to the other side of the county to visit my beau! A little shopping in an old fashioned hardware store, a rare thing indeed! We were almost in Norfolk/Cambridge!
Then a spree to Springfield's, alas I left the Radley bag behind :) Lunch at the garden centre, and a few veg plants for next spring :) And home again in time for the teenager to be home from her last day at school for this academic year.
Time to make good on my promise!
The borders on this quilt top just needed to be added and it would a finished top ...
and a finished top is what we now have!
I've even pieced the backing,
pressed and squared up ready to be loaded onto the frame!
I think we can safely say that day 1 was a complete success!
I even managed to cut a few more strips for my 36 blocks ...
So what about day 2?
Well, I would like to move this quilt along to be a completed top
I have all the blocks pieced and just need to lay it out and make some sashing decisions, cut and piece and hey presto! Wish me luck!
I have to go into town with the Teenage Diva for school uniform shopping! A stressful event for both of us!
however, we did manage to get her hair dyed tonight, Berry Red, well it is the summer after all :)
- Day #1 - Jeans's quilt bordered and ready for quilting
I'll try to be back tomorrow with another progress report :)
