Advice needed please

 I am trying to get through a few UFO’s this winter before the busy(ier) dance season of my girls starts in April with multiple dance competitions out of town. 

Some of the reasons these UFO’s aren’t completed is because I am questioning what to do next, how to finish them, quilt them, back them etc.  So for my next couple of blog entries I will be asking your advice.

I started this one back in the fall. Blogged about here. I had taken inspiration from all the falling leaves at the time.  If I took inspiration now it would be an all white quilt! I didn’t follow any pattern, just made it up as I went along, using only stash fabrics.

I have since assembled the top and added a border with crumb corner stones.  Do you think I need to add another border?


DSCN8080As soon as something is laid on the floor Lily is there to check it out, like an inspector.  I don’t know how she can hear a quilt being laid out when she is a whole floor away? Yet she can’t come in from outside when we call her.

Happy Sewing!



  1. It's fabulous - I like it just the way it is!

  2. I like it that way it is too. Start quilting it!

  3. Wonderful quilt. Looks to me ready for quilting!

  4. I think it's ready for quilting - and it would be neat if your binding echoed that inner border.

  5. No other border needed. Love the inner border by the way.

  6. Personally, I would add another border. That sudden jolt of dark needs softening, IMHO.


Thanks for stopping to view my blog. Please leave me a comment and tell me what you think of my projects.
