wrapping up the day on a quilty note


I have enjoyed this day and decided to get the last borders on the string top before calling it a night. Tomorrow is dedicated to working on charity quilts and gathering all the bits and pieces I need to take over to the lqs. I will take it along and use the large tables for layering it and pin basting it so I can start quilting soon. I won't use any batting, just a nice snuggly flannel backing. That should make it just the right weight. I have a nice variegated yellow thread which I think will work well. I fit in staining half a section of fencing in our backyard after supper and walking Zoe-it was cool enough and at the half way point I was losing light too fast to see what I was doing, a good stopping point as my arms were at the stage of feeling like lead weights! I felt I earned my dessert after that work out- and Zoe had her treats for being such a good supervisor.

This quilt looks fabulous with its borders on! Like Mary, I like the green and orange colour combinations. ...still reminds me of salsa!
