The majority of my quilting time last week was spent on my Tell It to the Stars quilt. This was the 2014 mystery quilt by Judy Laquidara. I had the center of my version all put together last fall, but ran into some problems with the borders and stuck it away in a box. It's time to get those borders finished and this quilt top done!
I decided to change the pieced border a little bit from Judy's design (you can see her finished version HERE.) I reduced the number of blocks that needed to be pieced for the border and also added a pieced corner square to that border. After the pieced border, there will be a narrow border of the background, and a final wide border.
My biggest problem on this quilt right now (besides pinning and stitching all those endless border seams!) is that I don't have a fabric for the final border. I went to three different quilt shops on Saturday looking for a Southwest type print, but none of them had anything. I have found some possibilities on-line, but would much rather see the fabric in person to be sure I like the colors and scale of the print. The search continues...
I am linking up to Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times and to Monday Making at Love Laugh Quilt. Check them both out for lots of amazing quilting inspiration!
