Happy Days BOM - current status
When I snuck away for a weekend of stitching with Judith, Di and Trudi over the late May bank holiday, one of the projects I worked on was adding borders to my Sarah Fielke 'Happy Days' BOM from 2016.
In an attempt NOT to let this quilt get larger than I can handle, I diverged from the border options that were part of the BOM and did my own, very simple, thing. I surrounded the centre of the top with a half inch inner border in green and then finished with a border of low volume rectangles. It's not rocket science, nor particularly remarkable, but it does what I wanted it to do and that is keep your eyes focussed on all the hard work I stitched into the various techniques of the quilt centre!
And now, this pretty will take a rest until I clear some other WIPs and maybe finally decide if I want to hand quilt her (which I think I do).
