What a Difference 2 Borders Make!

Well, I put the 2 borders on the Disappering Nine Patch 2 and it does look better. I didn't have enough fabric to make a wide border, but a small one is okay because the length was already good enough. The fabric really isn't pure white as the picture shows, but is off white with pink polka dots.

Yesterday I was able to get some embroidery done on a pillow I am making to match my Redwood fabric quilt. It will match this quilt. It is very simple embroidery. I really am on an embroidery kick and am really enjoying it. I have 3 more projects lined up to do!! I'm off to the quilt shop today to get my list of things to go with these projects.

Also need a new ironing board cover---Maynard made me a big board ironing board, so when the top gets "used up", I just buy a couple yards of pretty fabric, cover the board and staple it to the back of the board, and I'm ready to go again. I love it---it's just my height for ironing sitting down. I'm just short on one end, so it is nice to have it just the right height!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!

It looks great! I can't wait to see your embroidery. Your big board sounds great. I adapted a table for ironing - just made a cover for it, put wheels on it and I'm good.

That is such a quilt quilt and interesting pattern so I just had to follow your link. And printed out her directions. Thanks for finding it, trying it out and giving us the link.
