This weekend was spent applying borders. The quilt to the left here is about 50"x44", just about too big for a crib, but after it's quilted it will be listed as such. The colors will be nice for a boy I think.
The fabric is from Moda's Collection for a Cause - Friendship. I used two charm packs and about 1/2 yard for the red border, the small inside border was cut from a French General print in my stash -- it blended in nicely.
The quilting will be a simple "orange peel" design around each piece, probably about 1"deep at the widest point.
The pattern can be found for free on the Thimbleberries web site.
I wish there were some great news to share, or even some excitement. I'm a bit sad to report the one think I'm anxious about is to read about Susan Branch's trip to Beatrix Potter's home!! If you aren't familiar with Susan's work, or would love to read about her working trip to England, click on the link to find her. I've enjoyed every post since the beginning, but have loved the photos she's posted of England most of all. I highly recommend her blog for your next tea break! ~~ttfn~~
