One final finished flimsy for 2008


The double four-patch top is now finished. As it turned out I wasn't able to piece the backing tonight so that must wait for Wednesday. I like how this turned out. Normally I would have made the borders wider, but it was already a little bigger than the requested size for a hotel hope quilt so I didn't want to make it much bigger. I hope to get this quilt and the two postage stamp quilts quilted by the end of this coming weekend, and bound if possible. Greeting the new year with three finished quilts in the first week would be great.

What a great finish! I like the narrower border...finishes it off nicely.

A very nice quilt indeed. I like the narrower border and I probably would not have even put one one. I think your border is just what the quilt needed.

Three quilt finishes in one weekend! I think my head would explode...

Seriously, really like how this one is coming along!

That would put you off to a running start to get three done in the first few weeks of January....... No doubt you will.
