During the week, I worked on fixing the big green border. This is the big border before: I cut it down to 3 inches, added a thin orange border, and pieced another zig zag 6 inch border.
Don't you think that made a big positive difference? It does not pay to take shortcuts. I should have just pieced the border to begin with, but I wanted to take an easier direction and just sew on a wide fabric border. In the end, it just added more work.
I still can't put the stars on until I add another 6 inch border. Then it will be 54-inches square -- finally divisible by 9, so I can add the other stars.
So off I go to piece away my Saturday...........
I have finished the second part of the border. Whew, that took all day! It's so big now that the only place I have to lay it down is on the bed (try to disregard the quilt underneath).
Well, now ....... (picture Zoey scratching head)... HOW did it end up being 60 1/2 inches square? (picture Zoey remeasuring ... surely it can't be!). It is. (picture Zoey uttering unladylike obscenities). ***!!##### NOW WHAT?
I guess the stars will be a quilt of their own. They certainly won't work now on this one.
Woman cannot live by quilting alone, so I guess I must go find something to cook for dinner. I'm thinking shrimp scampi and rice...something easy because I'm not in the cooking mood.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
