I slogged through the piecing and then added two bright borders from stash and a Mardi Gras backing- also from stash. The borders are so bright that they distract from the awfulness of the body of the quilt so I don't even hate it anymore! Don't love it mind you but don't despise it either and it's a nice size for a kid's quilt. Amazing what a couple of eye popping borders & some quilting can do, right?
It's quilted with orange thread in zig-zag lines in the body of the quilt and curls in the borders. It went fairly fast and I am so happy and proud that I did not let this quilt get the better of me!
I had bright fabric for backing [left over from a Mardi Gras quilt years ago] that would never blend with anything else I made and I'm happy to have used up most of it now.
Yeah, it's done and I have only two more UFO's both small watercolor quilts and I'm hopeful I can get those finished too in the next month. More on that later.
