A Finish!

So, while in Little Quilts only yesterday, I was checking to see if there was a good border fabric to add to my spiderweb quilt top. M. and A. had the idea to do an inner border in cheddar and an outer border in the Buggy Barn purple print; I thought the champagne backing fabric would look great with all of this. Are these prints not fantastic?

So off I went today to dear friend C.'s to longarm this quilt (after I got up at, well I won't even say, it was so early, to put the borders on), and got it quilted (bless you, C!), came home and got it bound:

Rembrandt decided it is a nice playing field for his catnip mouse:

Lovely fall-inspired spiderweb quilt (or is it a catnip mouse playing field)!

Lori said...

It is great and the border fabric are just perfect!
Did you reward yourself with a Sunday nap?!

Just go ahead and mail that quilt to me! I can make room for it, no problem.
I recognize that purple fabric and it is a good choice.

That quilt is so striking! It is really a different design with those plain blocks set like that. Awesome fabric choices, of course!

Brenda said...

It's wonderful! Hooray for you!~

Meggie said...

It is truly gorgeous! I love the way these Kitties feel the need to test drive the new quilts!

Once a quilt is pet approved you know you have a winner on your hands *s*

It looks great! I will be at Little Quilts this afternoon. I am taking the hand quilting class. I also hope to make it back there tomorrow for a last shopping trip before I leave town.

Well if Rembrandt likes it...it must be a keeper! :-) It is a very pretty Autumn quilt so I could see why he likes it! Also..I love when you mention college age son's phone calls to home. I've got the 20th year old in 2nd year college...freaking amazing! He came home a few weeks back with light pink boxers that were once white; laundry is a challenge.
