Away With The Fairies!

This weekend I have managed to get quite a bit of stitching done - I just couldn't wait for a complete finish before I started snipping - hmmm, yes I think that will be okay!

I still have two borders to add! Peg of Happy in Quilting sent me a pic as inspiration to do the borders - I'm happy with them - cut 6 inches wide and I pre-quilted before I attached. The blocks are cut 6.5 inches square and I have used Thermore wadding and it is fluffing up nicely. Thanks, Peg, you are a Darling - oh, happy days in Blogland!

I haven't made a rag quilt in years, but I'm looking forward to starting a new one and trying some of the squares in Texture Magic. I'll be sure and show how they turn out.
Love your bright fun colors.

Such a fresh, crisp, yummy combination of fabrics. It's lovely. The clipped raw edges look like decorative icing on a box of goodies. (Two references to eating in 2 sentences--I must be hungry.)

Barb said...

Love the colors....and the raw edges too...

You know, I've never really been interested in the quilt-as-you-go method, but I'm turning out more quilt tops than I can afford to take to the long arm quilter. Then I recently saw a very lovely quilt done in the method, and now I'm thinking I just might need to give it a go.

Your fairy fabric has found a very pretty, happy quilt in which to frolic.
