Successful weekend!

I got another UFO done! This quilt has eight different floral prints in it. I did vary the quilting in the green inner floral border. I stippled it in soft green thread. The rest of the quilt is quilted in off white. The size is 80" wide and 89" long. The back is a white on white piece that I hand dyed a green to match the green in the inner border. I did not have a pattern for this. I just cut the center rectangle and just worked my way out from there. I don't really like square quilts so I made some of the borders on the top and bottom wider to get some length to the piece.


Here are the yellow and white strips from Friday's post turned into a top. This weeks goal it to get the back pieced and get it pin basted for quilting.

I also got the four pair of C's pants hemmed. We met up for dinner so I could give her the pants and my fortune cookies said "Set high goals". Maybe that means all the time and not just when I feel like it? This is going to take some serious thought!
