A Flimsy Finish

I have finally finished my Country at Heart Alphabet quilt top. I quite like the "make do" borders...

I had to add little cornerstones because my fabric was a bit short but I think it looks better that way. I have enough of the first border for the binding, so it has turned out quite balanced after all.
My hexies and I are over our tiff over reverse sewing and are now on speaking terms again.
And I am very close to having the last corner of hexies together.
Whilst I was getting over my sulk I finished the first stitchery block in the Crinoline Ladies Set....btw there is only 9 blocks not 12....can't count around here!
She is really rather sweet. I have started the 2nd traced block but need more thread. Hopefully I can get some today....I don't want risk them going back in their drawer!
Must dash off with Hubby to pick up a new bit for our van....he might even treat me to cake if  I am lucky.
Enjoy your day.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx

  10. A lovely finish. I think you are right about the border. It has worked well especially with the inner and outer green borders as frames.
