Mostly blue, somewhat Log Cabin-ish in constructions, this crib sized quilt needs another border, probably a narrow one which may be a fold-over of the backing fabric ... WHEN it's finally sandwiched, backed and quilted. I finished this much today and ironed it and it goes into the UFO bag for the time being. I don't feel like doing the finishing right now.
I may look for a place that accepts crib size quilts and does the backing and quilting -- the Empire Quilters to which I used to belong did that. I could always send it to them. They present dozens of quilts to homeless families every year. I'm sure others do too. I'll explore what Bayberry Quilters do. I'm too new to know all the projects yet. I'm glad to have used up some fabrics I'd cut into for other projects and felt somewhat bored with. There are a couple of mega-boring calicoes in it. I'm happy to have made a teensy-weensy dent in the blue stash. I'm always curious how something will look when it's finally together because I just don't have the visual imagination to figure that out in my head.
