It took me a little longer than I planned, but I am happy to announce…
The last gift quilt is now a completed top! This is, of course, the outhouse quilt I’m making for my brother. When last you saw it, I had completed the friendship star border and was trying to determine if I should do another full border or just top and bottom.
In the end, the remaining fabric I had made the decision for me – I just didn’t have enough for a full border. So… six starts and some checkerboards finished it off and I have to say, I’m quite pleased with how all the elements came together.
It finished up at about 51″ x 67″, so a decent lap size. I’m off to Mom’s this weekend for another quilting marathon, so look for some FOs next week!
