I don't know why I was so fixated on the spools not becoming a UFO. I decided I didn't really like any of the fabrics I showed in my last post. After pulling out almost every piece of fabric I owned (cause I was NOT going to buy anything) I finally made a decision - why didn't I think of this sooner? I'm a scrap kinda gal...it is a scrap kinda quilt...made from scraps...so the border should be scraps...right?
RIGHT!! I didn't even have to cut the squares, I had a bin full of them. Whew, I'm so glad this top is done. FYI, it is made of 100 2 3/8 inch spools and 56 2 1/2 inch squares in the border...final size 34 inches square.
Finishing this quilt top was painful, what wasn't painful was going to the Pacific International Quilt Festival. Lots of great quilts, LOTS of great shopping, and the best part was I got to meet Loris of Luckypup Quilter. We have been trying to meet up at PIQF for years. This time she stuck around an extra day and braved shopping with Stephanie and me.
It was so nice to meet you Loris, thank you again for the snippets. I hope we can meet up again next year.
