Don't Touch My Junk needs borders

I worked most of the day today putting the remaining blocks together.  I think I will have two of these babies ---  there are enough blocks for at least one more quilt.  Later.

Here is my Junk hot off the machine as I finished the very last seam on the center.  I tried to put all the flowers and landscape blocks in this one.  And all the teapot and cup blocks as well.  After I hung the finished center on the design wall, I noticed a random cup on the floor.  It needs to be in the border I guess, so it can be with it's buddy blocks.


Now It needs some borders.  I am going to rummage through my stash of many colors and find just the right color that will calm the mish mash of blocks and make this something that will live on my sofa, where I can point to a block and say, "That heart was my first attempt at paperpiecing!"             glen

There are some greta blocks inthere, Glen. Choose a border (scrappy??!) with colour(s) to make your favourites 'pop'!

I love the idea of having this as a quilting memory quilt. There are wonderful colors in this to work with for the border. This is great.

Put the floor cup in the next one so that each "junk" quilt will have one. Then you can say that your cups runneth over with blocks.

I bet all those blocks are so glad to have a home now - they look very happy together!

You've made me want to do one, too. Have taken so many classes and have lots of "memories" leftover. Hope mine looks as good as yours!
