Ok. The sashing borders on the Grandmothers Choice were way off.... so it really did have to have some border added (like it wanted) to help hide my booboo's on size. I was hoping that tan was a little darker than the sashing when I grabbed it... oh well. I think it is happy with it now... so time to remeasure it and see how much I need to add to the backing I had already made. It should not be too bad.... I only added 6 inches on each side with the 2 borders. I have enough of the purple border to make the binding as well. It turned out bigger than I was thinking - around 84x84!
We had a power outage (unscheduled and not from a storm) for a couple of hours on Tuesday evening while the kids and Greg were at soccer practice. I took the time to get some hand quilting in on my trip quilt in a very quiet house. See the white cat Sophie on her chair? She was purring up a storm as I quilted away.
Emily is taking a break from homework so off to the garden I go to see what beans and peas need picking.
