I spent a good part of December putting borders on quilt tops that had been waiting for their finish. This is one more that needed a border. It is the mini Soul Searching (from Kathy Doughty’s book). I had the leftover 1.5″ wide strips in my main floor studio for over a month so yesterday was the day to tackle it.
This is one border of 3 rows added to the top of the piece.
Now I have both borders sewn on and this piece is about 42″ square. Here is the post where I showed the whole top before the borders were added.
Now I have to decide which 2 other pieces to finish before the 20th (second 10 days in January). Since the art quilters are coming Monday and my TAW class is Tuesday, I only have until the 18th. Since there are 31 days in January maybe I can steal the extra day and tack it onto this group of 10. Also fit in there cleaning the basement, baking 2 batches of cookies and sewing another strata for demonstration purposes, my great grandson’s baptism and first birthday party (for which I’m helping my granddaughter with the cupcakes).
