Borders on the Oak Reel Quilt
Yesterday I spent a lovely day at the Quilt House in Clarksville with the girls. I got all of my Ohio Star blocks pieced, and this morning I sew them around the quilt.
I hopped in the Jeep and ran it over to my mom’s, to try it on her bed and see where she wanted the sides to fall. “To the floor of course” she said! Ack! Not what I had in mind.
I’ve finished piecing another border of half-square triangles, which will be followed by a large brown floral border, that I may or may not scallop.
Here’s where I’m currently on hold, as I try and decide if I want to wrap the half-square triangles around the corner blocks, or if I want to do something different there.
I’ll have to play with it a bit before I decide. This entire quilt has been designed on the fly!
Thankfully, Siri Cat was keeping an eye on me while I sewed. I’m sure (so she tells me) that I’d screw everything up without her
But meanwhile, I’ve a friend that is moving and needs help packing, so tonight I’m feeding my sourdough for blueberry muffins in the morning, and I’ve mixed a batch of focaccia dough up to bake tomorrow. That should help keep us happy while we pack.
A little voice whispered to me that I should probably sleep on my corners before doing anything to them!
