..... QUILTING FOREVER, HOUSEWORK WHENEVER .....

Slow going, but progress is being made...

Laid out my fabrics today to see how, what I was thinking of for borders, would look... You can see my June Tailor Shape Cut Pro under all my fabric here. First time I've used it, and it went really well!
 I cut my strips, sewed strips together, and cross cut. Easy peasy with that ruler!!! I like! 8-)
Here are a bunch of my cross cuts waiting to be sewn into borders for the quilt top hanging over the chair there...
 ?... I guess I could have sewn many more strips together, fold a couple times, and then cross cut the whole thing...? Oh well... Next time!

 I put a bit of it up on the display wall to get a better visual... I plan to bind the quilt with the stripe...
What'cha think? Does it work?

Time for bed... Back at it tomorrow...
Nighty-night friends!

That's a perfect border and I love the binding too. Do you cut your bindings on the bias? I have read that you should but I never do.
We had planned to go to Wpg today but it seems that the weather is not going to co-operate.
