How wonderful it is to have friends on the net to welcome you to a new adventure! Thank you Yvonne, Kathie, Katrien and Inge for responding to my very first blog entry!
Did you notice I sort of cheated with the picture of the antique quilt? When I took the picture, the flying geese borders hadn't been sewn on yet. However, I took care of that on Saturday and even went on to cut lots of diamonds and triangles for the zig zag border that is next.
I don't know about you, but cutting diamonds, especially odd sizes, requires me to keep extra focussed on the job. Cutting fabric is not my favorite part of quilting anyway, so I usually limit myself to an hour or so of cutting at a time. I find this saves on wrist pain as well. If I only remembered stuff like that more often, LOL!
Anyway, I cut all diamonds and almost all triangles necessary and don't they look good?
I'll get busy sewing this border the next couple of days. I like the look of this quilt so much, I want to see how this zig zag border turns out.
