I've only ordered a yard & a half of fabric this year so far for a border on a top I've had put together for at least three years...maybe more. Got it out with the intention of making backing & piecing batting for it and decided I REALLY didn't like the border on it and ripped it off. Hope I like the new fabric better.
As a side note....I'm ready for Spring. This cold weather is getting very old!

...that since I haven't left the house since Monday afternoon that I would have gotten a lot of sewing done.
The phone rang a lot....can I blame my lack of accomplishment on that???
Didn't think so!!!
Yesterday I sewed up 24 quilt blocks for a block drive (that ended at the end of Nov.).
Today I pieced together four border strips, packaged up those 24 blocks and a baby gift to go in the mail on Saturday.
See, I don't plan to leave the house tomorrow either. :) My plan for tomorrow is to put borders on Orca Bay. I may or may not get them all on, but I at least want to get the inside border and the pieced borders on. I want the quilt a little larger so I'll probably put on another border out of the same fabric as the inside border and then bind in black. That should look OK.
Unless I change my mind.
I REALLY have to do better this year than I did over the past week!!
