Borders on...

Jim's top is now complete and ready to be loaded and quilted. It's about 58" X 76". Just the right size to snuggle under in his recliner while he watches the Chiefs.
I have yet to show you the fabric for the back. heehee.
But that will all have to wait awhile.

Tomorrow I'm going to the border class and I'm sure I won't get that one finished in one day, so I'll be sewing on it when I get back home. One more addition to my UFO pile probably.

I had about 4 or 5 inches on each segment left over after cutting the blocks so... instead of just throwing them into the scrap box... I took them all and cut them into 2" strips.
Some ends I could get two cuts and some I could only get one.
I have no idea why that happened.???
I sewed them end to end and used them for one of the borders.
I think it jazzed it up just a tiny bit.
Here's a close-up of the borders.

You all have a great weekend.

Happy Anniversary Deb & Jim.


  1. Oh Linda that jazzed it up MORE than a little. What a wonderful "guy" quilt. I think Jim owes you an evening out :o)


  2. Nice! I'm always amazed at how much a border can really "make" a quilt, and this one certainly does. I love it!

  3. The border is perfect. Great job AS USUAL! Jacquie

  4. Oh, mom I love it and I know Jim will be blown away! Great job!!! Thank you for the Ann. wishes:)
