Surrounded by Scraps (or in my case, Surrounded by Happy Scraps) is now a finished top and is off to the longarm quilter! Yay.
Last week I started assembling the rows. Here are the first two:
Today, I finally completed the top. I realized once I got the center together that I really liked mine without the borders. The original pattern has 5″ borders of the background fabric. That would make it plenty big for a queen, but I just wasn’t feeling it. (I will be honest; it didn’t help that with the borders it might be too long for my backing fabric. And I’m lazy.)
Here’s how far over the sides of my queen-sized bed it goes without the borders:
But, I do like it an awful lot without the borders so I decided to call it done.
Then I found this while I was pressing it. (I tried so hard to avoid two of the same fabric being next to each other!)
I delivered it to the quilt shop this evening so maybe by next Tuesday or Wednesday it will be back and I can bind it and call it done!
What have you been working on?
