Stitching on final "Contentment" quilt border is done!



The final, longest border is finished for my "Contentment" anniversary quilt...happy feet, happy dance!

It will go across the top.  The left and the right border ends are more or less mirror images of each other, with different fabrics.

Here are some closer pictures, from left to right.










I decided not to put our names or the wedding date around the wedding rings due to the fact that those little tidbits are already incorporated into some of the individual blocks.


I really hunkered down this week to get this finished as my email and housework lanquished!  Due to the way I designed the outer borders, they have gotten progressively longer as I have stitched them...I should have started with this one first!

It will be nice to get my work area straightened up after having over 1000 tiny bits at loose ends during the process of getting the four borders prepped and finished.


I hope to work on top assembly this afternoon and evening.  Now we will see how accurate my math was as I was designing, LOL!

In stitches,
Teresa   :o)

  8. Hope you have a sturdy floor as I can imagine your happy feet were beating the floor pretty hard. So many pieces in the borders. Regardless of the monumental task, you sped through the process.
