Back to Picket Fences...

At Wonky Bits last Thursday Lp gave me some instruction on how I could finish up my boarders on my Picket Fences quilt. I was worried about not having enough outer fabric for the boarder, and her idea may then show that I have enough fabric to get by with... Woohoo!! Thanks Lp! 8-)

This photo of a photo, at left, that Lp showed me is not the greatest, but it gives you and idea of what I am doing...

I studied the photo and Lp's instructions some, drew out and colored some plans, cut my strips and got to stitching...
Hopefully by tomorrow I will have a good amount of it done...DH is gone to friend Dl's again to help with some fixings, so I will have lots of time to myself to play in my sewing room... 8-)

Here is our Easter table from yesterday before all the company came... Was to be 13, but DD1 (who had to work) called and asked if there was still room for her... Thus there was 14 of us... Everyone brought some scrumptious food to share in the meal!
Thanks everyone! 8-)


I hope you too had a wonderful Easter Sunday with your families... 8-)

I'm glad you'll be able to finish that with the fabric you have. The table looked nice with your quilted carrots on them!

I hope you will have enough border fabric to finish your quilt.
Lovely Easter table setting. The carrot table runner looks so cute on the purple tablecloth. 14 people, you are brave my friend.
