    I have the strips sewn together and borders added. This will be put away with the others until I have the money to purchase batting. So in the mean time I will continue to make quilt tops for Tymeless Hearts. I'm trying to get as many done as possible. It would be neat to get 30 or more done before June 25th. I think I can do it as long as I stick to simple patterns.
    This 1 is 39in. X 56in. That will probably change when it is squared off.
    I know the borders a unsual but I like them.
    Thank you for looking! :-D

    I think your quilt is wonderful. Now why do I have a craving for chocolates???? :)
    The borders are great, I love the variety they add. I might have to think about that in one of my future quilts.

    Thank you!

    It isn't as lined up as I would like it to be but I think it still came out good.

    This is one of my favorite tops you've made. I love the borders and was just thinking to myself, "Why didn't I think of that?" Wonderful idea. Watch me copy you! :D

    Go for it.
    I really like to be different that's why I did the borders like that.

    No, it's a tube quilt. Here is the link if you want to see the tutorial.
