TA DAH! JELLY BEANS has its borders on!
Isn't that the prettiest border fabric? I just love it. (That's why I told you not to judge it before the borders were on.) You can see the A1 sticker in the top block - I left it there so I hung it on the wall the right way - and will leave it on until I label the top of the top for the long-arm quilter. Can you see that the white fabric actually has a very light green toile kinda print in it? It's really faint - sorry - but it is really pretty.
So - now that the top is complete - I have moved this UFO from Stage 10 to Stage 5. It still needs the back, sleeve, binding, label, etc. - but the TOP IS DONE - YAY!
I know everyone else in the UFO Challenge has completed their UFO all the way through the binding and label stage - and I congratulate them. BUT I am also a SLOW POKE QUILTER - and I have the badge to prove it. ;))
In the next day or two - I want to show you how I did my borders - when I get it written up and all of the photo links worked out.
I don't know yet what the March UFO # is - and at this point - I don't really care. ;)) I'm a retired CPA - and I spent over thirty years trying to get something done by a certain date. Trying to meet a deadline - any kind of deadline - is just not a part of who I am any more. The RETIRED part doesn't have to do that any more. I can do what I want to do - when I want to do it - and at my own pace. I may play along - just for fun - and then again I may not. We'll see. Stay tuned.
Besides - part of my new toy came today! When I get the actual toy - I want to play with it!
Talk to you later - gotta go -
