    Finished from my bag of 2.5" blocks...nr. 13

    Hello. I just finished this one last night.

    And here is the table shot so you can see what I did with the quilting a little better. I am learning. I'm in a constant state of learning. I am actually starting to enjoy the quilting part as well. Good thing as I have piles of tops to finish this year.

    What I didn't show you was the 'floor shot' where the border wouldn't lie flat. Sigh. Oh well. Live and learn. It will look pretty on a bed, but definitely not a wall. The fabric that I used for the borders was simply too stretchy and I just sewed them on instead of measuring and cutting to fit the middle. (Blush, blush).

    Here is the top...before quilting.

    Floor shot...see how wavy the borders are? Sigh...

    Just say you meant it to be that way I think it's beautiful and won't keep you any less warm with wavy borders, so to heck with it. As you say, live and learn.

    It might get better after you wash it and everything shrinks. It's really beautiful! Love the colors. I like how you made a square quilt not square. Looks great!

    I think it's fabulous! But I have a crush on anything made with 2.5" squares.

    A very pretty quilt, indeed. Good quilting, too. As for the wavy sides - just don't put it on the floor!

    very nicely done. once it's on the bed, you'll forget that the borders are wavy.

    That is just a little more snuggle room in the quilt, it is so pretty no one will even notice the little bit of waves.
