Well I have started to finally get a quilt top together for a gentleman at work that has requested a quilt with a Southwest Theme. I actually started this quite awhile ago and made most of the blocks before I ran out of steam..The motivation for this quilt was a Southwestern Tapestry. The tapestry was on the wall of a home that we rented during a family get together a few years back in Leavenworth, WA. When my co-worker asked me to make something with the Southwestern feel to it.. I thought of that tapestry instantly. Funny how things get you motivated. After getting all the blocks together though I got side tracked with some other items with deadlines this past year. I have to give some credit to the Crazy Mom Quilts, her Finish it Up Friday challenges have put a spark under my bum to get some projects finished…this quilt was put to the top of my list and is on its way to hopefully being finished this week. 🙂 Might not get it quilted by Friday, but at least the top finished. Here is a picture of it on the design wall.
I spent most of the day out in my Sewing Cave. Haha… with all the rain outside..it was fun to work on something that reminded me of sunshine and warm weather. I have finished putting the center blocks together.. and am going to add a 2 1/2 inch border and a 4 1/2 inch border, this week hopefully after work tomorrow. 🙂 Question I have is.. Do I add a light border or a dark border.. I am a little torn about which way to go….. Any input is appreciated.
Till Next Time….
