Quilt top done...

Yay!!! Another top done!!!
Today I added the borders and mitered the corners...
Measures 62"x74"
The mitered corners went very well.
No ripping... 8-)
I found this in my stash.
Perfect for the backing, so I prepared that today too!
Now to prepare some batting and perhaps I can line up another appointment to use the frame/machine at my friend's shop... Sometime after my Sunflower quilt gets done this coming Friday of course! First things first! 8-)

Now, obviously it hasn't happened as of yet, but "I am hoping" to have my Hollyhock wall-quilt all done this week! There! I set a goal without even realizing! Kewl! 8-)

Check out Em's post today. She finished up one of her PhDs! One down, 5 to go!
Way to go Em! Good for you! 8-)

Ladies, please remember you need to let me know when you've finished a PhD... 8-)

Hope you are all having a great weekend!
Myra

Very pretty top and your corners are perfect. I ususally goof up on one and have to do it over : )

Lovely quilt, Myra.
Must have been such a relief that the "fur-girls" lumps and bumps were nothing to worry about.

I like the brown & orange combo used for the border.

what a prety quilt! I love the sky blue that you used... and how you did your borders. I'll have to remember that feature of making a small inner one of the same as the larger outer... very neat idea!

- and I had never heard of PhD before - who knew but I have a few PhD's of my own!!! ;)

Love from Texas! ~bonnie
