Last Night...

I think this is the best Friday Night Sew-in I have had!  I actually accomplished a lot!  (Helped that the one show I wanted to watch on tv was not on!)  Here is the 'diggers & dozers' quilt top that I finished piecing.  It still needs borders...measures about 50x52" right now.


Also.  I got these borders put together last night, though I didn't sew them on until this morning. 

The tiny border (1/4") is a pale blue with pink rosebuds.  (Thanks, Janer!)  Which, by the way, is what I am using for the backing fabric.  So, I thought I would add a special touch to the front with it.  Only so much pink one can handle.  Not sure if you can tell, but the inside edge is not sewn down.  I took 1" strips of fabric, sewed them together (end to end), folded/ironed in half, then sewed to the outside edges of the quilt top all the way around.  Like one would do a regular border.  Then, I sewed  the wider pink border on top of it.  Just gives it a little something...and breaks up all that pink!  I like it.  

Hope you're having a great Saturday!

Those quilt blocks and sashing are perfect for a boys quilt and with specialty blocks, would be fun. Will have to make charity quilts, no kids to quilt for;)

It all looks really good, that is a lot of work. I wanted to do a Friday Night Sew In but ended up talking with my brother on the phone.
I hope to get some done today. I have three projects I would like to finish today.
Have a great weekend!

Looks like you got a ton done! I am still (im)patiently waiting for my toddler to take a nap so I can finish up last nights projects and post pictures!

I know if my sons were still little they would have loved the dozer quilt, great job Jacque.

Your work today is very nice! Such a pretty border! I've also never seen the brick pattern with sashing around them. Makes it nice and bright.
