Last night I attached the borders to my 19th Century Reds quilt. It feels pretty darn good to have something to check off the list so early in the year. Wouldn't it be great if I were to be so industrious in all my endeavors this year?!?
I found an acceptable red for the outer border when Terry had her fabric clear-out sale back in September. I was thrilled to find something with enough yardage that I could also use it for the backing. Happy-happy-happy dance!
When we decided that we'd do another UFO challenge for 2017, this quilt definitely made the list. And we drew #4 - it's number on said list.
I took it to Terry's on Tuesday to try to finish the quilt top. I got as far as having all the sashing strips and cornerstones attached, and all the central quilt top together minus the bottom row.
Happy Quilting, Friends!
