Wednesday....sewing with the windows open!

Well, I had to shut them a little bit ago as it was getting too hot but the fresh air and birds talking were a fun way to sew this morning!
I got it to this point with all the rows sewn, the trapezoid sections and the corner triangles sewn on this morning.

Then I started adding the borders. Did I mention I really hate sewing long seams?  There is one more border to go with the dark blue but this is where The Century Quilt is right now. I hope to cut and sew the final borders on after picking up the kids from school. This was 78.5x75.5 before adding the 2 inch yellow borders which actually matched what the pattern said! It will be a full size quilt when it is done.

I also did a quick CW block today - Writing from the Cars.

The Century Quilt is really shaping up! Always love blues and yellows together! We have had gorgeous fall weather here. It's hard to stay inside and work on my borders.

I am loving your Century Quilt! And loving seeing it come together. (I too find sewing on borders and bindings to be a tedious process ... those long seams are a pain.)

I've been sewing with windows open, but eventually I have to close them for the opposite reason ... it gets too chilly inside. ;-)

Your Century quilt looks amazing... great job and so close to being a finished flimsy!
