Nightly Play Finished


Here's where I left off in my last blog post. Since then I have finished the top, but I am jumping ahead. Follow me through my steps and some of my thought processes. Even though I like things with only two borders it just didn't feel right for this quilt. It needed something else. I cut the floating sections out of the remaining fabric first just to make sure that I would have enough. Then I decided to do another sawtooth border, but just smaller. So I added that on.



I really liked that way that looked and made the decision not to add anything else to the bottom. Now, all I needed were the corner pieces and to sew what I had onto the top.


I like that, now if I have enough of the burgundy left, I will add a small border and . . .




DONE!! Well, except for the quilting. It needs something simple I think. It is much larger than the 12 x 12 so this one will stay here for sure (unless it tells me that it needs to go live with someone else, but for now, it will stay here)

That tiny sawtooth border is perfect...it frames without overwhelming your beautiful star.

THis turned out so marvelously. I am sure it would live in house OK. Maybe 12X12 is only a suggestion. So beautiful! Bonnie

Beautiful colours - love the burgundy with the others. It's actually saying it wants to live with me, can you not hear it?
