Busy, busy, busy

I really have accomplished a lot since my last post. I am still working on the Tulips and Lace quilt.

I am now on the 2nd from the outer blue border. I am doing a scallop on each edge with a straight line through the middle. I plan to crosshatch in the wide outer border.

Meanwhile, I turned these fabrics

 into this top.

The pattern is from this book.

I made one of these quilts years ago for Craig. At the time, I was really frustrated with it because I didn't cut enough fabric to start with and then had to figure out how many more of each piece I needed. Anyway, I told Craig that he better appreciate it because I would never make another one of them. 

Fast forward 7 or 8 years, and here it is. I love the way it turned out except the shades of green fabrics. I wish I could have found darker shades of green.

I am pretty sure I will machine quilt this one since it is a busy quilt and the quilting will not stand out. I know it will still be beautiful when finished.

Two more days of school.

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting.
