Today is Memorial Day, and the last day of our stay at home retreat. I’ve been doing pretty well getting this little quilt together. Just adding some pieced blocks to the borders and it will be ready to quilt.
The chunk of fabric on the left is the actual border, with some flying geese blocks to break it up a bit….that bolder print just didn’t make the cut!
This little quilt came about when first, I found I had too much time to brood over the lost vacation, and second, someone on Stashbusters was looking for a spool pattern and several links were provided.
I used up left-over 2.5 inch strips from several projects, and cut just a couple more. The background is just Kona “Snow”….the end of the bolt. I even got to use one of those special rulers I bought at one time for something really cool, I am sure!
Fast and fun!
Today were getting some much-needed rain, so I am hoping to load a top on the long arm (aka Annabell) and plug in a book via the Ipod and get one from the stack quilted.
