I stayed up late last night finishing the borders. It took me FOREVER! I added three borders instead of the two Sue's directions called for. And I don't have a very large area to lay out a quilt so it takes a little longer. (That's my story and I'm sticking to it!) I wasn't alone, though. I had Clark W. Griswold and family along for company!
I'm still not finished. I want to add some applique to bring that dusty, sage green to the center of the quilt and maybe some of the border fabric. The fabrics all blended beautifully laying in the pile but the border fabric is just throwing everything out of balance. Maybe a good tea bath when it is all finished. I'm certainly not taking it out and doing it again! I have enough dark red fabric left for the binding and that will help.
Hope you all enjoyed making this quilt. Sue and I haven't discussed it yet but maybe a parade of "Scatty Stars" is in our future soon. We only have 2 more Christmas Quilt Alongs left. Don't think because the quilt top is finished that we are finished. Sue and I may have a few more surprises up our sleeves in the next two months!
