A Little Quilting Going On

Design Wall 
I have actually gotten some quilting done this week.  Dug out another quilt that I started a couple of years ago, and started putting the borders on it.  

I am so pleased with the way this looks.  It is from a pattern called Diamond in the Rough by Debby Caffrey (I think that is the name) and I took a class from a local teacher a couple of years ago to learn how to do this quilt.  Of course I didn't do mine like everyone else did, lol.

I am going to add 4 inch squares of the patterned fabric on the long sides to make the width better.  This fabric is all Thimbleberries, and I have so much of it that I am going to piece something for the backing.  That will use up another 10 yards  about.

Very pretty. I thought that was what we were suppose to do: Put our twist on the pattern. Shucks, guess I have been going about it wrong.

Bust that stash! Great job Perry. I like your pieced border element. Cutting 10 1/2" squares to put a back together will put another dent in your stash.
