because the border vines and blossoms are all glue basted!
I got these finished last night! There are no duplicate fabrics in the blocks in the center of the quilt and no duplicates in these 4 borders. The woman who made these had an incredible fabric collection. Once I clean up the cutting table this morning I will start making the dots for the centers. All those little solid square are the centers for each flower. I'm quite excited to have gotten this far and see wrapping up all the prep work this weekend.
But there are leftovers and you won't believe how many!
I have 10 embroidered blocks that might go into a small quilt so that I can practice some quilting ideas. Or not.
There are still 30 basted flower blossoms, some partial blossoms and HUNDREDS of basted petals.
But that's still not all!
There are FIFTY FIVE basted blossoms in blue and not one duplicate fabric in the bunch. Amazing. What in the world was this lady planning with all of these?
But I can't think about these right now. The will be packed away for another time. I'm going to focus on the project at hand and hope that I don't leave it as a UFO for someone else some day.
