Quilter for Hire?....No!

I'm making progress on the quilt project I took on. And as I was sewing tonight I was wondering, what the heck was I thinking? LOL I got all the blocks finished Wednesday night and because they're fairly small (7 1/2"), I decided I needed three more to make the quilt a little bit bigger. Then I raided my stash for the sashing and cornerstones. It's a simple setting but I don't want to spend too much time on this because I'm trying to keep track of my time so I'll know what to charge.


Tonight I added the last sashing strip at the bottom and the two borders. This came out way cuter than I thought it was going to. I hope I'm not sorry I used up this fabric when I have a little grandson of my own. :o( Maybe, just maybe, there will be some other cute fabric by then. Do you think they'll still be making fabric in 200 years? LOL


I love the stitching fabric on the small border. And I was thinking I would use flannel for the back but I'm going to wait til tomorrow to see if I have enough of something so I don't have to spend any extra money.

I don't have any plans tomorrow so I should be able to sandwich the quilt and get it quilted this weekend.

Liz, you did a great job. I love the way it all ties together and that little border with the baseball stitching looks perfect. I'm sure the client will love it.

Very cute! I loved your comment about saving fabric for when you have a grandson. I have some fabric I'm hoarding just in case I ever have a baby. I don't want to have a baby, and I don't plan on having a baby, but I will have some fabric ready, just in case...
