Wonky" "T

I finally finished the braids and putting on the outer borders of this quilt. It is queen size now and I hope to Machine quilt it myself. Really bright but it's all from the old stash. No Thimbleberries in this.

I took this in the basement over my two tables and down. Thought I would get the best picture. Lots of memories in here. Don't know when I'll get to work on this one but it's rolled up in the basket with the rest of them

Today was my day in town, rather morning. Get my hair done and a little shopping but while in Lowe's looking for some mulch to use to get termites out of the wood chips that are decaying and making nice mulch. It started to pour and of course my umbrella was in the car. Thank goodness this wasn't a day that most people were out shopping so had parked as close as I could.

So home to a dark and dreary day. The wind is really blowing now but at least we haven't had the weather that a lot of the country has had. No flooding or tornado's.

Hope your day was good and thanks for stopping by.

Love the colors in that quilt! Scraps are the best. Will this be hand quilted or machine quilted? Terry

That is one groovy quilt! I love scrap quilts and I bet you have some great scraps,judging by your quilts. So you are using mulch to get rid of termites? Termites scare me--the damage they can do.

Wow! Your quilt turned out marvelously! So pretty, tesalated like that. And the braided border adds so much. By the way, I am glad you found your mini!

I just saw your post on Quiltville Chat and wanted to check out your blog since you live kind of near me (I'm in Lexington, VA) and I love the name of your blog! I am in the process of making a braided border for a pantry quilt - in fact I am in the middle of writing a blog entry about that quilt tonight. I am finding that my braided border strips are pretty stretchy - did you do anything special while attaching your border to the quilt? It is really bright and cheerful!
