19 – Brrrr Park quilt top done! Or is it?
December 6, 2010 § 24 Comments
Top done! Or so I thought until I put the last border on. The center of this quilt was put together and sitting in my UFO pile. So I’ve been working on the borders this last week. When I really started looking at it, it seems a little stark in the middle. The pattern was originally 6 trees – 3 rows & 2 columns. But I wanted a more squarish quilt. So I left the last row off. It’s the perfect size for a sofa throw. Actually, I made a couple of other adjustments as well. The second border is a half-inch bigger and the outer border is two inches bigger. Now it really is a nice size ~ somewhere around 71 inches square.
But then… I had to make one more block…
Don’t you think this is a little better? I pinned the extra block in the middle just to see what it looked like before I made my final decision. I would really like to finish this by Christmas Eve. Actually, I have about four quilt tops that I’d like to finish by Christmas Eve. Now there’s a challenge, eh?
