Pondering Life’s Anomalies

Yes, that title makes it sound like I’m thinking deep thoughts today, but not really. I’ll explain.

Yesterday I got out the Lone Star top to put the borders on it. You remember this one, right?

The one that had one side a full inch longer than the others, right?

Well, yesterday I decided to get brave and do those borders, I measured through the center and made the borders for two sides, neither of which had to be eased to fit the border. I was a little confused because I thought one of those first sides was the long side, but I measured through the center again, cut those borders, and attached them. Still no easing required. Totally confused.

I had measured multiple times when I found that side was an extra inch long! All I can figure is that in pressing the heck out of it and whacking the seams to flatten them, the other three sides lengthened just enough… Oh well, never look a gift horse in the mouth, right?

I also pressed some of my wide backing fabric and trimmed it to fit and took this quilt over to my most LQS to go out to the longarmer. It should come back in plenty of time for a finish this quarter. I just have to decide on a binding color. I don’t have enough of the white background fabric to make the binding, at least I don’t think I do, so I either make a scrappy binding or use the yardage I have from one of the prints that I purchased. The borders are the white.

What have you been up to?

Quilt on!
