    Finished Flimsy

    The first quilt I've made just for me...



    I finished putting on the last border this evening... there's no place in the house large enough to spread this out to take a photo... so this is the best I could do...




    It was touch and go with the last border... I only have 5" WOF left after cutting the strips for the borders... *whew*

      Absolutely beautiful! Great job. I love it. This is something I have never done for myself "make a quilt just for me". I should just do it. You must be so proud of it.

        What a Beautiful quilt, Freda - you must be so proud. Your piecing is wonderful, and I love the colors and pattern.

            That is absolutely beautiful! Pink and green is one of my favorite color schemes, and the border is just perfect
            To quilt or not to quilt?.....what a ridiculous question!

                    That's really pretty and all for yourself! Everyone should have one just for themselves. There is still time in this year yet for everyone to try and do that.

                      We are always so eager to give gifts to other people, I think we should all give ourselves a gift of a new quilt...just like Freda did!!
                      And what an outstanding quilt she made!!!!

                              Wow, how pretty. I love the colors and the border is fantastic. I agree we all need to make a quilt just for us.
