Partial seams for total satisfaction.

I think I've mentioned before that I am not the world's most patient person. Actually I know I've mentioned it before. I'm still plugging away at The Shipping Forecast and finally had a piece long enough for the left hand border. The sensible thing would have been to wait until I had finished piecing across the bottom, but I didn't want to wait, I wanted instant gratification. Nothing for it then but a load of completely gratuitous partial seams. I am telling myself this is good practice, but in truth it's just giving in to my character flaws. 

 Looks good though, I think.

The next time you see this is will be a completed top.

  2. I never tire of seeing this quilt. If it were mine I would hang it up to so I could watch the waves and ponder. It's very soothing somehow.

  3. I like the subtle line this addition makes. You can see the border. Open ocean but contained if that makes sense.
    So, so lovely.

  4. It does look good! I can't believe you are not a patient person; a non-patient person should have toss those HSTs in the trash long ago! The top is coming along beautifully!

  5. Wow if you are not a patient person, the rest of us don't have a chance! The border makes me think of water washing over the shore. Beautiful!

  6. When I put the Daily Bird together last weeek or so, I had a ton of partial seams. The obvious never occruured to me when was having fun giving the birds all stories! Shipping Forecast is really an amazing quilt.

  8. It's your quilt, work any way you like. The border looks great. Your hand piece AND hand quilt, that makes you a very patient person :)

  10. I am glad you are waving and not drowning, to misquote the poem. Lots of waving going on in your quilt, some real movement going on there.
