A Friday Finish!!

I hope you all are not getting tired of seeing Mr. George in varying stages of doneness. I got the final border on this afternoon and I promise you won't see it again until it's quilted and bound.
I am pretty happy at the finished quilt but I know now why I could never be a designer. How do you make a pieced border fit 37 3/4"??? Me either!!!! hahaha

Have a terrific weekend!!!

  3. Wow! A really nice one! Are you SURE you don't want to design? Looks like you are already there.

    Judy Laquidara at the Patchwork Times blog says that the way to make a pieced border work is to adjust the borders before it (or add more borders ater) until the length fits your blocks.

    See her post here:

    (and she should know she designs lots of quilts with pieced borders)

  19. Great, great quilt. I particularly like the stars in the last round (and the red points too). Can't wait to see this one quilted and displayed in your next patriotic quilt post.
