I FINALLY decided how I was going to finish out my Chunky Churndash quilt. I woke this morning determined to DECIDE and to get on with it!!!! I have never cut a sashing or a border before ( uncharted waters for me ). I've had quilt tops I was afraid to finish. I quess mainly because I was afraid I would stretch it out or it would be all worped or something. So.... I decided.... there's no quilt police here! I jumped right in and picked out the border sashing.....started cutting up 2" squares to sew together for my borders.....uh, that's gonna be a lotta squares!!!
I think I'll just do like 9 patches and sew a row of those all the way around. Doesn't look so bad does it? I wanted it to be colorful. I'm not scared anymore. I followed Bonnie's how to instructions on sashings and it came out JUST PERFECT!! One of my favorite quotes is so true---"Getting Started is Half the Battle". Now if I could only purr-fect hand applique like Nanette. She does such beautiful quilts!
