Wow, back to back posts on finished quilt tops - I'm liking this! Country Charmer is now ready to send to the quilter, a couple of weeks later than I had imagined it would be, but hopefully still in time to have it ready to use by Christmas.
Borders always seem to bring out the procrastinator in me, but yesterday was election day here in Canada so, while I was waiting for the polls to close and the results to start rolling in I decided to just sit down and do this.
I've changed the borders a bit from what was in the pattern, opting for a single wide border rather than two narrower borders, and without the nine patches. The gingham that I had thought I would incorporate will now become the bias binding, I think.
I was so excited to see the whole thing that I put it on the line without giving it a good pressing, but I'll do that today and see if I can drop it off to Roberta this week.
I don't think I will ever get tired of looking at all of those different star blocks.
Now I need to find a backing and am hoping that Roberta will have something in a large floral cream that will work. Time will tell! In the meantime, I'm pinching myself that it's done....M
