Thanks for all the feedback regarding the borders of my 16 patch top. I decided I needed to ponder it a bit more and I sorted out the backing in the mean time. I realized I didn’t have anything big enough but I had a good JoAnn’s coupon so I went shopping. I picked up this wide solid.
I think it looks pretty good with the border fabric. And with my coupon, it was only $5 a yard. Not bad for 108 inch wide backing. And I won’t be running short this time! I even got it loaded onto the frame.
I was working on a project on my Bernina 1030 and managed to throw the timing out. Ugh! I ended up pulling one of my vintage Singer 301s out. I had nearly forgotten how great this model is.
I am off to work this morning. Have a wonderful day!
