Much of yesterday was spent cutting borders. In order to get Dad’s quilt close to the size he wants, I kept adding borders. He wants it for his queen size bed but he has a problem with his quilts sliding off the bottom of the bed. I’m going to use a good flannel sheet for the backing and I think that will help keep it from falling off. The quilt will be about 90″ x 103″. I think I’ll use wool batting as I think wool is warm but not hot.
It ends up with seven borders, not counting the outer sashing. I may be kicking my own butt (wouldn’t you like to see me try that!) but I cut all the borders yesterday afternoon, sewed them and cut them to size. I’m hoping I did all that right . . otherwise I’m going to have a huge mess on my hands.
Here’s what’s done so far:
The “X” sashing squares . . aren’t they cute? Here’s a little tutorial on how I made those. I hope the next time you see this quilt, the entire top, borders and all, will be done!
