Now for a border!


I finished sewing the Zig Zag quilt together over the weekend, so I stopped at Cut UP and Quilt on my way home from work so that I could get the border fabric. There are so many pretty ones in this collection, but I thought the quilt needed a calming effect for the border, so I got the green floral. 
My first real day at work went well, it doesn't take too long to get back in the swing of things. We are having very August like weather now...it was about 95 today with high humidity. I guess it's going to last for the next week or so. Glad I'm not painting!

The quilt looks great! (Why does it always heat up the first week of school???)

I like this quilt more and more, each time I see it.

Perfect border. It has been hot here to. Maybe the last heat wave of the year.

It looks good Jean. Is this a quilt you are keeping or for a customer?

I love the fabric for the binding and the pattern came out really good.

I think the green floral will be a perfect border, you are right, the quilt needs a quiet border.
