I set aside some time this morning to work on the borders for the Magic Trip Around the World. I needed to sew the top and bottom inner border then the outer border. I realized when I went to pin the borders on that I had transversed the sizes...I made what I thought were the sides to fit the top/bottom and what I thought were the top/bottom fit the sides... I guess that is why I usually pick non-directional prints! but hey, IIWII! and I will probably the only one who ever notices!
Here is as much as the Flimsy as I could get into the picture!
Here is the rose print border. The blue really seems to 'rule' the quilt top. I was hoping the green inner border might just calm the whole thing a tad. In any event, it will look pretty on the guest bed!
Right now, the binding fabric is in the dryer along with the backing fabric. Next I will need to piece the back.
I forgot to share a picture out the kitchen slider door yesterday, May 1st. So here is today's view. DH was able to mow today~the first of the season. Looks and feels like spring has arrived in my corner of blogland! Miss Daisy Dog decided to saunter past just as I snapped the picture. She loves being outside with DH and walks around with her tennis ball in her mouth~hoping that someone will throw it!
