I managed to get the entire fishbowl top done yesterday. I was thinking about a one inch border of blue, but not finding something that talked to me, I just decided to use the background fabric-
I really like it, and because of the fabric I was going to use as the final border, I even mitered the corners, something I hardly ever do. Then it was time for the final border. Of course, there was a glitch. See this incredibly cute fabric-
When I found this in Hancock’s, it was on the clearance table and there wasn’t much of it. I bought a yard and a half. I had planned all along to use it on the borders of the fish quilt. Well, time to put on the borders, and I didn’t have enough. So, my brain had to shift into creative mode. I decided to use this on the top and bottom and had to look for something different for the sides. This is the final product-
Kinda strange, huh? That blue and green is supposed to be water and has frogs on it-
Seventeen different fabrics later, it’s together. I don’t think Harry is going to mind the different borders – I think he is just going to focus on the fishbowls. So now, I can concentrate on something else- like quilting the block of the month quilt that will be for Layla for Christmas. I cut the backing fabric – solid pink – and I think I will just self-bind it because I think the pink will look cute wrapped around the front. After that, I will quilt the fishbowls. Not too confident about my quilting skills, but I think I can do it. You’ll know for sure soon!
Thanks for stopping by!
