I just want to say thanks to everyone who has been leaving comments about the progress of this quilt top.
I'm just so thankful for all the support you guys all give me in my quilting journey.
It really makes my day!!!
So, I've been working on the borders this afternoon.
I put of solid cream border that finished at 1 inches wide.
Then, I decided to pull out all my little strips of red and cream fabrics. I cut them 2 1/2 inch long. I used all different width of strips from 1 1/2 inches, to 2 1/2 inches wide.
Then, I chain pieced a cream piece to a red piece until all my pairs were sewn together. Then, I divided all my pairs into four piles. Then started sewing all my pieces together to make four strips.
When my strips were long enough, I sewed them on to my quilt.
So, these borders were pretty randomly pieced.
But, I really like the way they turned out.
And I busted more of my stash of reds and creams.
So, now I have to figure out what I'm going to use for a backing.
I hope you like the way it's looking!!
