Working on the borders

I am working on the borders for the Quilt-Aid quilt. I have chosen to use the border print from the fabric range Potpourri Sachet (all the fabric is from this range), so the size of the centre is dependant on the width of the sashings.





I am on a pretty tight time deadline with this quilt - so my DH was helping me when I trialled the sashings - he was unpicking for me.

Picture my DH bent over his unpicking, then putting "his" sewing down with the exclamation "The hell if I know where love resides!!"

LOL!! Have I watched that movie too many times???


It's going to be a b-iii-g quilt. Should be large enough for a queen sized bed!!

I will show you some more photos as I progress.

That's looking great but I shouldn't have been drinking coffee when I read your DH's comment, what a crack up!

This should be a magnificent quilt when done; so much texture. Will you hang it in the shop? If not, I can send you my address...
