Yay, It' a Quilt Top!!
This past week we learned how to measure for our borders. We measured across one direction in three different places and then averaged the meaurements. Then we cut 2 strips in that size and sewed them on two sides down the direction we measured.
After sewing and ironing the first two border pieces, we measured across the other direction repeating the process. When all 4 inner borders were in place, we repeated the entire process for the outer borders.
The result is awesome. It made me say, "Yay, it's a quilt top!" (What a difference borders make!)
Here is the finished product! Let me know what you think.
