Finishing Fool

I pulled out my oldest UFO the other day.  All it needed was a border and then I pieced the triangular outer border, and it's done.  I was scared of the border but in the end it wasn't too hard.  This quilt is practically an antique, it's so old.  It's so far from what I would make now, but I find that interesting really.  My quilting style has changed so much over the past ten years.  I think all our quilting styles have.  This design just screams nineties to me. 

Yes, that bottom border is sitting as crooked as a dog's hind leg.  I wasn't the best of quilters ten years ago. 

Till next time,



  1. When I saw this picture of this I thought it looked so fresh! And I was thinking how can I apply elements of this quilt to the one I'm working on. may scream ninties to you, but not to me. It's really quite lovely. (I found you on Quilting bloggers.)

  2. Thankyou so much for both comments - I'm still such a learner on this and don't know how to individually reply. But thankyou again :)
