Last night was the final class of this quilt. I have been machine quilting the quilt all week and was not finished with it but it was finished enought that I could work on my borders. We used a product called Borders Made Easy. This is like paper piecing. You take this roll of printed paper with a design on it and attach it to your border and just sew on the lines. Easy peasy! Great product. I will use it again soon. Once we had one side of our borders quilted we then learned how to use a tool put out by EZ Quilting and Darlene Zimmerman called the Easy Scallop. This tool allows you to mark scallops from 4" to 12". If I knew it was this easy to do scalloped borders I would have done it 2 years ago when I made that quilt...I've been waiting that long to finish that quilt. I haven't finished this quilt yet but will be working on it this week and showing you pictures soon. I don't know how our dear departed ancestors did their quilting without all these wonderful tools and gadgets we have nowadays- they must have been alot more resourceful than us!
I have a sewing guild meeting tonight and won't get to work on my quilt. I am so excited about this quilt I can't wait to get home and sew. That is such a good feeling to have again. Gotta go for now, til next time....
