    I got the borders on my mother's quilt today. I turned the navy blue into a 'peeper', which is a fold of material that stands out from the quilt instead of just being a flat border. I chose a backing fabric (it is a flowered purple) and left it with my friend to be quilted Maybe my mother can take it home with her after her visit! Yay! LoL!

    That is gorgeous, Susan. Your mother will treasure it. It will be perfect if she can take it home with her. Can your friend do it that quickly?

    Thank you, Luanne My friend has been expecting me to ask her to do this so I think it will be ready on time. My mother gets here Thursday this week and is staying a couple of weeks. I will need to get the binding hand-stitched in time.I can sew one side of it on with the machine then the other side needs to be whipped down by hand.

    Loving that border and I see the color better in this picture. Like it even more! So excited to hear how your mother will react. She'll absolutely love it.

    Put "eat chocolate" at the top of your list of things to do today. That way, at least you'll get one thing done.

    i got it ready! I gave it to my Mom too She was present when it got quilted by my friend, and then as I stitched the binding on for her. It took a day and two nights to stitch the binding as it is a Queen sized quilt. She has managed to fold it so it packs into her suitcase. I want her to take it out tomorrow to use it as a background to do some four generations pics with my DD and DGD as they are visiting us too. Just had to show you the final, completed quilt spread out on my bed. Lol! I stood on a ladder to get this shot:

    That is beautiful. I'm glad you got up on the ladder to take the picture; I think it needed it for us to really see the beauty of it. I agree it'll make the perfect background for your 4 generation picture.

    Thank you, Luanne. As it turned out, we used another smaller quilt for the photos. Mom had already packed this one by the time we got to take pictures! LoL!
