Working on the May UFO




During today's sewing time I finally got the outside border on. It really didn't take long to do since I just wanted a narrow float border. 

Then I did completed the  very glamorous job of hand stitching three pieces of scrap batting together. 
I also started piecing a backing from the quilt leftovers, so hopefully the pin basting will take place tomorrow and the machine quilting can start.

  4. You're almost there! I really like the look of the floating border. I recently had to piece a batting for a very large quilt. It feels so good to use up those scraps and know that you're saving a ton of $$$, doesn't it?

  7. Looks delightful!
    I am impressed that you got the "glamorous" job done so quickly. I would have stalled there--for quite a while, I'm afraid. : )
