I am a quilting mad woman these last few days. Finished the quilt for my friend at work and finished the border for the Round Robin I am participating in.
I must admit I was a little perplexed with the quilt top I had to add a border to. So I took the quilt top to my favourite quilt lady's store and begged for help. Shirley was wonderful...she whipped open the quilt top took one look at it and said "no wonder you don't know what to do with it." Yikes!! I knew I was in trouble then and there. She decided that I needed to put a plain border on it to calm it down and the designed she picked for this quilting newbie was Flying Geese. (GULP) But I don't know how to do Flying Geese I sobbed. Well, that was all Shirley needed to hear...she quickly got some scrap material, rushed over to a sewing machine and promptly gave me a lesson on how to do a Flying Geese border.
My test patch.
I decided I did a pretty good job so I forged ahead.
The material is a navy blue moira ( I hope I've spelt that correctly). The goose is done with the wrong side of the material and the sky is done with the correct side of the material.

Now that I've gotten all caught up on my projects, I'll have to start a new one. HMMM....what to do next?
You'll have to stay tuned to see. LOL.
