Border finished

The border is now on the quilt top I made at the Mystery Quilt class. Next I need to figure out how to proceed to finish it. I’m not planning on quilting it, just tying. Possibly with a flannel backing and not even using a batting. That would make a lightweight coverlet that would work for summer. I want to find some red to match the zinger fabric for the binding. I checked online and found the fabric, there’s just one problem…I don’t know what shade it is. There are 3 possible choices…raspberry, turkey red, and I think true red. So perhaps a trip to Bowling Green is in order, with my scrap in hand. I do need to find a backing, so….time to do some shopping.

  Here’s the finished top laying on our bed with a “kitty lump” starting the breaking in process even before it’s a completed quilt. Precious was sleeping on there and had no desire to move.   IMG_9170

Well, I’m thinking it’s bedtime….at least here it is. Hope everyone has a good night, morning, afternoon, or whatever time of day it is where you are.
