Blue on Blue…The Top Is Done!

I finally got the borders sewn on the Blue on Blue quilt.  It laid on the floor of my living room for over a month just waiting and waiting and waiting.  This was the week to get it wrapped up and stitch those borders on.  It wasn’t difficult, first 5” border out of cream/navy print, second 5” border of pieced blocks and final 2 1/2” border of the cream/navy print.IMG_3975
Here is a close up photo of the cream/navy print I use for the borders.  I don’t know when I will get this quilted but at least it is all pieced now.  I do plan to bind it in a navy print to finish out the outside edge with a dark color. (Forgot to add that it measures 96x106 so is a very large quilt.)IMG_3977
I now need to figure out what my next project will be so maybe I will have something to write about again that is sewing related.  I am sorry it has been so long between posts but when I was doing no sewing it was hard to post sewing blog posts.  I hope the other posts didn’t bore you too much.

Other posts on making this quilt in case you are interested in looking back to see how I made it.

This turned out really nice! Your corners work so well also. Good job!

Don't worry about how many times you post - hey, we all have a life in addition to quilting! 8-))

One of the things that drew me to your blog was this quilt so am glad to see it again! And I enjoy non-quilting posts as well. Life happens to all of us and it's interesting to see what other quilters have going on. Makes it all more realistic I guess. Plus I have never been to Nebraska so I love pictures you and Elaine Adair post--think I found your blog through hers. BTW, I smile every time I look at the hot mat my granddaughter made for me. So glad you posted that and helped me along with it as well. My granddaughter really enjoyed that activity.

A really excellent quilt--sometimes there's nothing better than a play of 2 colors and an interesting layout of simple geometry.
