Something wonderful happened today..... the last little berry got appliqued down and my Jubilee quilt is ready to be basted so I can start quilting!! I am so happy. I posted all about it on my blog. Forgive me for adding the link, but I'm ready to call it a day. I welcome you to hop over and read all about it. This has been such a wonderful journey for me. I'm so glad I started this quilt and I know I will finish it.
Hi there, it's been a while. I have been dragging my heels with my Jubilee Quilt but thought it was time for an update. I spent ages trying to figure out what border to add to my star blocks.
I finally added the half square triangles. Now I have spent months trying to decide what to put on the applique borders. I decided my original idea of having my cats and dogs represented on the borders was not going to happen. My total lack of drawing skills is holding me back.
I very nearly gave up on having an applique border at all. As you can see I've been appliquing my initials. I was a bit concerned that they are a bit too big and maybe I should have stuck to one colour. I would appreciate some feedback if anyone has a suggestion.
