Ready to Quilt



I brought the table topper into the house to make sure it would actually fit before I started quilting it. It fits fine. It's a bit hard to see the brown border against the brown floor but there is a 4 inch border all around it. I wouldn't have needed it for the sides but I did for the length. I guess I could have made a few more blocks but now it has a border and I'm happy with that. I also pieced a backing so this afternoon I hope to load it on the frame and get started with the quilting.

Well done! Won't take you long to quilt on a frame either (jealous much!)
