November - Where Did You Go?

It has been a  month since I  have posted. Not sure what  happened to  November, but it is almost over.

I have been  working in a number of  projects, some secret,  so they cannot be  disclosed  until the recipents have received the said items.

But what I  can disclose is Rebecca's quilt,  Rebecca  is from One Wee Bird blog, and a member of Possum Magic,  the  round robin I am  in.

Here is the border  I made for Rebecca's  quilt, (please excuse the red check background  the quilt is sitting on).


I chose the pinky red and green from my stash my stash,, somehow,  the  photo  colours  are not exact. The pattern of the border is a leaf design from a book of quilt borders.  First of all, I  framed  the previous  border  with a one inch  strip of white, I wanted a border that stood out,  yet blended  at the same time. The border is a four inch, when completed.


Thank you for taking time to stop by. Happy stitching. Sharon

    1. I am glad it came out that way, sometimes, the colours can be iffy.

  3. Very nice, Sharon - I think it must get harder and harder to decide what to add with every round. The colors blend in nicely, and I like the white sashing border you used to set yours off.

  5. What a lovely happy quilt! I really like the border - loads of movement (reminds me of the old fashioned barber poles)!
