I'm very happy to say that I got the final borders stitched onto "Emma's Quilt" tonight. I used a very old microdot - anyone remember those from the 80's? - that matched perfectly. And there is just enough left for the backing. Moving stash - no matter that it's only one piece - is a good thing! Actually I finished up another piece making the pinwheels. This is a Jo Morton pattern - you can see her version of the quilt in this post from last February. I showed many of her quilts and talked about the classes I took from her in three of my early blog postings.
I also made very good progress on the other little quilt that I'd hoped to finish last weekend. I have one pieced border left, plus three little wool stars to appliqué onto the border. That top should be finished by bedtime on Thursday evening. When it's done I'll have crossed twelve unfinished tops off my list - two more than my goal for his year. What a great feeling that is!
1. Dryer weather and snow instead of rain in the mountains.
2. A completed quilt top
3. Cortisone shots and medicine for our dog Shadow
4. Spices for mulled cider with a shot of rum
5. 50% off complete framing orders at Michael's
