I have been stuck here on my ...
for twenty days and twenty nights.
Three weeks behind and the last border to be announce on Monday.
This was in part due to prioritizing my Stripes Blog Hop Quilt
and, quite frankly, the "Checkerboard" border unexpectedly gave me trouble.
Not the sewing, of course, as a checkerboard is one of the easiest units to sew.
Size of units, color or units, placement of units all frustrated me.
I have and sewn a set aside many pieces
and will probably use them for one or more pillow covers.
Finally, I put it on my design wall and stared at it
and fidgeted with it
long enough that my creative quilty muse took pity.
Now, I am happily sewing!
Interesting Reading Find of the Day:
I read this on
Have you heard of this?
Have you tried this technique?
I would love to learn more about this.
I may try it on woven or Essex Linen which have a greater tendency to ravel.
I have been trying not to see the border choice for this week
so I can keep the mystery element of the challenge as intact as possible.
So if you do not see me on your blogs or IG feeds, you will know why.
May you have a happy, quilty weekend!
