Well I got through an entire season of Lost making this quilt!
Decided to put the borders on per everyone's suggestions
Used the swirl material for the back - but added a ribbon because at the time it seemed like a good idea.
Made my own bias tape/binding.
Now before you peek at the pictures there are some rules:
1. If you notice that the right side boarder of brown is smaller than the left....it is either a) your imagination or b) I did it on purpose....your choice but those are your only choices!
2. If you don't like the ribbon - well I don't really either but because its for a raffle we have to all agree to say we like it and it adds flavor to the quilt; and
3. Tell me why I started doing this? I became obsessed with this quilt for some reason and its not one that I'm doing for an emotional reason (it was a secondary quilt for the kids relay for life team to choose from and a use up the last of the breast cancer material quilt). I couldn't decide on a pattern; I couldn't decide on a boarder; I couldn't decide on the back....I don't know if its a labor of love or a "I'll be dam&*# I am finishing this quilt and it will look like an 8 on Pam's scale of 1 to 10.
I also including a close up of my FMQ - this was the first time I've ever used the clear thread - I thought it would be hard to deal with but once I got the tension right it was easy!
Oh yeah - its lap quilt size - ended up 36 wide by 48 long...again do NOT know how I come up with these measurements....
Ok enjoy and remember the rules above!!!
Front and Back - it does match - sorta!
up close of FMQ'ing!
