Work in Progress Wednesday

It is turning out to be a crazy busy week around here! So much to do before I head out of town. The QOV top is getting closer to being done. I just have two more long seams and borders to add.

I did actually purchase fabric for a border for this way back when. Now I am not sure I like it all that much.

The colors match the hand dyed fabrics I used in the blocks quite well.

But it doesn’t look very patriotic. I like my QOVs to be patriotic. If I can’t find anything else in my stash, this will be it. I can’t justify the time or money to go shopping for border fabric when I already have something. Especially since I don’t see myself using this fabric for anything else.

I have gotten a few more shirts taken apart. I can’t wait until they are all pressed and I can start cutting. I am thinking that might not happen until I get home.

I still haven’t finished the binding of my little blue and brown 9 patch. It may be my travel project.

Housecleaning, more laundry, and some packing are on the agenda today before work so I better get to it!

Linking up with Lee at Freshly a Pieced for WIP Wednesday and Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts for Let’s Bee Sewcial.

    Like this simple pattern. Looks fantastic from far…

    Wow, perfect 9 patches. I’m insanely jealous! I think the border is fine with the center. Some veterans like the more quietly patriotic quilts. And they all appreciate that you took the time for them! And binding is great for the car. Have a good trip!

  3. This all looks so crisp and precise – very nice! I think the border works well enough. I think the print is too small in comparison to the size of the blocks in the quilt, but it’ll make a nice contrast, anyway!
