Border project........

I have several quilt tops waiting for borders.  If you go back to this post I am saying I'll wait a couple days before I make a decision on borders.  That was in October 2010....so three and a half years later I'm going to finish it.  This quilt's pattern is a free download here and is also in one of Kaffe's books.  I have kept the leftover squares and all of the yardage in one bin all of these years, just waiting......

Be prepared isn't that a motto? You were prepared to finish it when you were ready. Spring like colors. Should brighten the day. Chris

Love your fabrics! Thanks for the link.

Oh man, I just love those fabrics! I have the strips you sent me and have been fooling around with them. Those colors are just so fantastic!

At least you had all the fabric together! That was good thinking! Those fabrics are beautiful! What a collection!

Oh Wanda that's funny...but I do the same thing! Now after you pick your borders and finish it, then will you make another project with the squares and fabrics from the bin? :)
Also - just wondering, do any of the stores out by you have a good selection of Kaffe and the like? I'm on the hunt for some yummy splashy prints. I started a quilt before I chose all the fabrics and now I'm stuck. Thanks!

The top is beautiful. Thanks for the link to the pattern. I book marked it for future reference.

I keep everything for a quilt top together too - even if it turns out to be years instead of weeks - glad you will be finishing it :)

Isn't it amazing how quickly time passes? It's like meeting up with an old friend again.

a couple of days, a couple of years - you know I always say that Quilt Time is a time warp and this proves it. You have such a lovely taste in fabric. Good luck moving on with your tops

Have fun with your blast from the past.

Beautiful, Wanda. I bought that book and fat quarter bundles of KF fabrics year before last to make that quilt. Can't bring myself to cut the beautiful fabrics.

This Quilt is so pretty. Love the colours and prints.

The weekend got away from me, and I didn't get to my computer...

Your stars were a hit this weekend for sure. I just love them. Today's post is wonderful, with your usual gorgeous fabrics, they really are just the best. We all need a boost of spring colors right now. With our cool temps not giving way to any warm spring temps yet.

I keep all the fabrics together until the quilt is finished too, just in case. I'm glad the day came to finish it!

That should have given you plenty of time to think!

Beautiful fabrics and I think most of us have had that happen......time just seems to fly by!
