The final border is a dark plaid. It's been interesting working with these wovens and brushed cottons. It was hard to square the blocks as the fabric moved around so much. So while it's not perfectly square, hey, it's folk art!! This quilt was quick and fun to make. I learned a lot, and look forward to the next folk art/primitive quilt.
My brother is home and feeling pretty good. Naturally he's not well yet, and is having a bit of trouble getting around as he's so sore from the incision. I suggested he might want to get a walker to hang onto to keep from falling, and he said he already picked one up. He said it helps him stand up from a seated position, and he's able to walk more with the walker than without. We discussed when I should visit, and he wants me to wait until he's up and about. Since April's out because of tax stuff at work, it'll be more than likely the second half of May. I want to scout the area out for real estate while I'm there, too.
Jane came over yesterday afternoon, and we were rummaging through some stuff in a closet. She discovered I had two of the same kit in there. Then I went out to the car to get a quilt book I wanted to show her, and she pulled another one just like it out of a stack on the end table. That does it. No more buying anything! I don't even know what I have here any more!
~ Road to recovery for my brother and a good friend.
~ Sleeping 10 hours last night. I must have needed it!
~ Finally finishing a flimsy.
~ A good TV dinner. Those things sure have improved! :)
~ Bird chirping outside. It's crispy, cool and beautiful today.
~ As ever, my Daisy dog.
EDIT NOTE: Wow, I just noticed how uneven my spacing on the "flowers" are from block to block. I need to pay more attention to that ... but I've got an excuse for the fourth block; I prepped that one while I was waiting for news on my brother last Fri. night. (sigh) It's folkart, right? LOL
