I got Elizabeth off to the quilters finally. I swear it took me two weeks to buckle down and get the borders on this quilt! I put it on my bed and pretended it was all quilted and ready to snuggle under.
Thank you Wendy of Quilting and Life for giving me this wonderful idea.
I picked up my Samurai Squares quilt from my favorite quilter, and as usual, she did a great job.
This is going to be a graduation gift for one of my nieces, and I sure hope she will like it. I am tempted to keep it for myself, I like it so much! I like the narrow black containment border, then the raspberry border, then the polka dot border. It seems so chic to me for some reason. Maybe it is the Tour d'Eifel fabric, I dunno. Here is a close up of the quilting.
On a separate note, I have to share something that Allyson of Fat Cat Quilts told me. Remember how I said I tried to buy 5 yards of Patisserie fabric from Sarah's Fabrics in Lawrence, Kansas, but the website lied--they only had 2 1/4 yards? Well guess what? It has been 12 days since my purchase and all the uproar in regard to me trying to get a refund (they charged my card for the full 5 yards). And THEY ARE STILL ADVERTISING THAT THEY HAVE 5 YARDS of that fabric!!!!!!!!!!! And I was going to give them the benefit of the doubt that they didn't falsely advertise.
