3Cs Quilt along the borders...

Hi Everyone,

Here are the borders. Not that I didn't think you could do this on your own but just in case we have some newbies that haven't done it before. I know I promised a pre-view of the quilting but I am not ready with that yet. I got a little sidetracked this weekend making a bag and cleaning house becuase my in-laws are coming this week. I promise you show you when I get it marked and after I quilt it too... but that will be a week or two. So here are the borders...

1. From blue polka dot cut 2- 1 1/2" x 44 1/2" strips and 2- 1 1/2" x 45 1/2" strips

2. Sew the 44 1/2" strips to each side of the quilt top.

It isn't sideways and wonky. I am short and I have to get the quilt up high to get a picture over the top of my quilt frame which stands three feet in front of the design wall. You will see in the last picture. So I can't always get it straight when on my tippy toes :)
 3. Sew the 45 1/2" strips to the top and bottom.

4. From of the large blue floral cut 2- 4 1/2" x 47 1/2" strips and 2- 4 1/2" x 52 1/2" strips.

5 Sew. the 47 1/2" strips to each side and the 52 1/2" strips to the top and bottom.

You see here is my quilt frame and my ironing board :)

Ta Da! All done. Pretty painless huh?

I hope you all enjoyed the quilt along and you think we ended up with a pretty cute quilt.

Talk Soon!

A very cute and easy quilt. Your instructions were very clear and well photographed. I hope to get to this next month - fabrics are waiting.

Every time you post another step on the qal I am reminded of how I wanted to join in on the fun.
I think I can finally admit that is not going to happen *sigh*
Maybe one day when the mile long to do list is just half a mile long :)
Hum, but it looks so cute...
