Border added


I have been reading lots of blogs and see so much getting done in the last couple of weeks, and I have struggled to get the border on my Bear's Paw quilt. Life has gotten in the way of quilting this week, but I just finished adding the border. We won't look at the time. I kept the border simple, this is one of the largest borders I have added, but I think this quilt can handle it.



For my birthday, I received some cash, and I think birthday money should be spent on gifts, not day to day stuff. I waited until after Christmas before going shopping. I decided to get a few books, and they arrived this week. I think I was in the mood for applique when I was ordering them. My applique still need a lot of work, maybe the books will help.

Your Bear Paw quilt is looking lovely, and oh all those gorgeous books.

Very nice! Bear Paw is one the best blocks, isn't it?

Nice bunch of books there. I thought my applique was pretty good until I took a class from Becky Goldsmith, she sure taught me a lot. Good luck with yours. Mostly it is just lots of practice - and according to Becky Goldsmith - really, really tiny stitches!!

This is looking better and better - I love it. What a super haul of books - my applique needs some work too.

Those books are so tempting, I'd make myself a pot of coffee and have a lovely time looking at them all. The border has finished off the Bear Paw perfectly, it's turned out beautifully.
Liked the tour of your sewing room, I love getting new storage and sorting through my stash.
