{Anothe WIP Complete!}

To follow up my spectacular Saturday of sewing, I put the border on my quilt top on Sunday.  I love the sage green colour that we picked!

This baby measure 46 x 76 inches and I only have to cut the fabric for the backing before I can send it off to the lady who is going to quilt the top for me.

(That's Mr. Pie's Feet! tee-hee)

Here's the backing fabric, which will also be the binding.

It's going to cost a little bit for the machine quilting and the batting, so this may have to wait for a little bit before it gets done.  I think I just want a normal meander pattern because it's kind of organic looking.  What do you think?

So my WIP list is shrinking!

1. Accounting Class  - Done! Took the final on Friday!
2. Icarus Shawl
3. Zen Cable Socks
4. My First Quilt - Top is done!
5. Paper Dolls Sweater - Blocking as we speak!
6. Mary Poppins Scarf
7. Wrap Skirt Experiement
8. Blue and Yellow Bag - gonna work on this one as soon as I get up from this blog post.
9. Modern Log Cabin Blanket
10. Hey Teach


  1. Sarah, LOVE the WIP list - that is cool. And so like me with my many lists! The quilt is gorgeous!

  2. Well, aren't you just little Miss Busy Bee this summer.

    I'm glad you pointed out that those are your husband's feet... I thought the quilt was sprouting appendages!


  3. Way to go Sarah! Love the sage green border. Can't wait to see her all quilted. I agree that an all over meander is the way to go on this one. There is a lot going on with the patterns on the fabric that any kind of patterned quilting would get lost in it.

  4. That quilt is gorgeous I love the colors you used and they way it came out great job.

  5. If money is an issue, you could quilt in the ditch on your machine instead of sending it off. If you plan to send it off to be quilted professionally, most places include batting in the cost.

    An all over meander would look nice.

  6. Color combination is lovely! Thanks for sharing. :)

  7. Nice color combinations! Congraturations for finishing the quilt top :)
