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.

Beautiful quilt! The outer border is just the right final touch. Looks like your May goal is within reach.

It's just lovely!! I find that the backing and finishing takes me the longest!! And I like doing it the least!! Hugs, Julierose

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?

This will be such a beautiful quilt, and you are so close to a finish and the happy dance that goes with it.
Greetings,

I agree, the border was the perfect choice and really makes a lovely final statement to beautiful quilt.

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. : )

Good job. Just a few days left in May! Make the most of it!

This is already such a great quilt. Those blocks on point are perfect for framing the center. Great progress, Kathy!
