While waiting for my backing fabric to arrive for my cathedral window top, I took the opportunity to tackle my charity quilt project and whip this up into a quilt.
I was sewing along at top speed and all was going well, or so I thought. My first roadblock was the size. After sashing up all of these blocks (using Jayne's wonky block method over at Twiggy & Opal) the quilt was too small for the charity quilt requirements. Not wanting to go out and buy more fabric I tried to find something in my stash that would work for a border. The only thing that I could find that was doable was some orange batik. It's really bright but since the blue background was also a batik I figured I could get away with it. Besides, it's going to a charity for young children and brighter is better, right? :) I decided to just run with it but I guess I ran a little too quickly.
It was when I was hanging it up to take this photo that I realized my mistake.
I don't know how I didn't catch this when I was ironing the entire thing, but yes, I somehow put one of the borders on backwards. It has since been fixed and now I just need to find some time to quilt it.
Linking up to any of these link parties.
