It always amazes me how quickly these little cross stitch ornaments come together.
I am defrosting two freezers today. It is convenient to have them in the basement where my sewing studio is...because there is a ton of melting ice I have to soak up with a sponge constantly! I sew a border and sponge up...sew a border and sponge up! There is just a tiny bit of ice left.
I have five borders added. Next up is the focus fabric from the star centers. Think I'm going to do a 6" border of that fabric...just have to measure my fabric and verify before I cut.
I still have lots of pieces I mistakenly cut. I am completely out of the white background and light blue mottle batik so I am thinking of taking the remaining pieces and creating a piano key border for the last...and final border. I have done the math and I have enough to just make it happen. Some time with a seam ripper will be required as I had many of the sections joined into long strips. I am not going to waste an inch of fabric due to my failure to read directions accurately!
Ultimately...this lap sized quilt will grow...all on its own...to a queen size. It's just my destiny to make big quilts.
