Calling the Quilt Top Done
Linda's Plaid Quilt Top
I just got the red border sewn to Linda's Plaid quilt. I've decided not to attach the wide green border. It looks fine as it is, and leaving it off will save me a couple of hours' work for tonight. Also, I think that leaving off the green border will keep the quilt from going more Christmas-y than it may be already. It is not a Christmas quilt.
The finished quilt will be about 51" square, kind of a small throw. However, Linda is about my height (very short) so it shouldn't be a problem.
The back will be made completely of the rose print. Linda loves roses, so she should love the abundance of them in the quilt.
My intent is to finish the quilt completely tonight, but my Plan B is to tie enough knots to hold the layers together so I can take it to church tomorrow to show quilter friend Judy P. I can finish tying knots later in the day.
