Valentine's Day Sudoku Quilt - The Border is On! -

In my last post I still needed the borders on my Valentine’s Day Sudoku Quilt -

I had some VERY pretty reds in the blocks themselves -

My bloggy buddy - LindaJ - life, quilts and a cat too - HERE -
Might recognize the White Squares with Little Red Hearts -
She included those with some scraps that she traded me -


In my stash was a beautiful Red Swirly Print -

That I had been hoarding saving for something SPECIAL -

And then I remembered my Rule #12 -

Rule #12 - Use your BEST fabric - while you still can!

So I USED it - ;))


TA DAH!! - ;))




Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

    1. Thanks, Julie! The photos don't do this little quilt justice - the reds are REALLY pretty - especially the border print. It is a little brighter than it appears in the photo - ;))

  3. I vaguely remember that piece you spoke of, LOL. Isn't that awful that it is only vaguely? I guess when you have sewn since you were pre-teen and quilted for 25 of the last years a lot of fabric is in and out. Sometimes donated to me too so I don't recall a purchase or picking it out for a specific project.

    The quilt is really pretty though in spite of the photograph not showing up as you would like! Good job. I'm just fiddling with something that I might do next---planning stages but since it is hand work I need to get started.

    1. Thanks, Linda - whether you remember the fabric or not, it is/was PERFECT for this little quilt - and I actually remembered that you gave it to me - so I had to give you credit. Now I can't for the life of me remember where or when I got any of the other fabrics - ;))

I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
