This weekend was very productive quilt wise.
This first quilt is the Warm Wishes quilt I have previously shown. Here it is at the completed flimsy stage. I am back to using my garage door design wall system. I forgot to measure this quilt before folding it and adding it to the "to be quilted" pile, but as you can see, it fills the garage door opening. Anyone need a quilt to fit a garage door? This is my Poppy 4 Patch Stacked Posies quilt finished to the flimsy stage. As I said in a previous post, the fabric left from making the blocks was way too busy for me to use as a border so I went with my favorite neutral; green. The width of the outer border is cut 6"--the width of my long ruler. Using the 6" measurement makes for easy cutting of the border pieces. This quilt top measures 57 1/2" x 66 1/2".
And the third quilt that was finished to the flimsy stage this weekend is my Tiger Lily BQ2. As I stated before, I just couldn't leave this one without borders. I had to piece the outer border in several places and I have just one tiny strip left. The border pieces were cut 4 1/4 inches wide--to maximize the use of what fabric I had left. My mother will be pleased to hear that I have a small piece of the lily fabric left. Although my mother does not quilt, she has her eye on that fabric! LOL This quilt top measures 65" x 78 1/2".
The wind was blowing a bit when I was trying to take a picture of this last quilt. Note the magnet in the lower left corner of the quilt holding the quilt from moving in the breeze. I love this "design wall".
