Since we had so much Chinese food left on Sunday, and I didn’t have to worry about making lunch or dinner, I threw caution (and the housework) to the wind and dove into completing the Time to Sew top.
I started at about 11 a.m., and with a brief lunch break around 1 p.m…
I was pressing back the last border before 5 p.m. And doesn’t it look fabulous? It’s so big, I had to take it outside for a decent picture. You couldn’t see the whole thing on my bed.
For cornerstones, I used this tealy-blue fabric that was leftover from the Petal Noir layer cake.
Outside borders were a clearance bin find that had been kicking around my stash waiting for the right projects.
I’ve got a beautiful purple floral for the back, and I’m still deciding on binding. I was hoping to quilt it this weekend, but it looks like Dave has made some plans for us (he’s doing sound at a concert for his school and is dragging me along to help), so this one may have to wait.
Still, it feels good to have the top done!
