Driving not sewing

This has been one of those weeks when loads of things have conspired to reduce my sewing time. This morning, for instance, I made the same 40 minute round trip twice, because my brain wasn't working and I left behind something crucial the first time.  

As a result I haven't achieved much since I posted last week, but have resolved the question of the red border.  I found another fabric I was happy with: a much darker red, with a subtle stripe.  I only have a fat eighth, or thereabouts, but I think that will do.  


I'm itching to get on with this now (having finished the bee block), so my resolution for next week is less driving, more sewing!

Linking to Off the Wall Friday.

  2. You know, I've watched this quilt as it has gone through various transformations, but it must be because of the red border that I am noticing all the COLOR in this quilt for the first time! It is gorgeous!

  5. very right for it! How large is this piece Kaja? It is really striking. Will you machine quilt this one or have you already hand quilted it and I can't tell in the photo... forgive me if you've shown it and my feeble rememberer is out of whack! Driving is a time drain around here... I can't believe when I was 16 and couldn't wait to learn to drive! I love a day with no driving now! LeeAnna

  9. This quilt is definitely in the "Adore" category of my brain Kaja! The border is really helps your eye travel around the quilt and link with all the colorful patches. Is your son watching this all come together? He must be very excited!
