Borders Added

It is hot here today. We had 91* a little while ago. I know it will cool down quickly, though, as soon as the sun goes down.  Poor Buddy is ready for me to shave him again, but I know it will be cooling down soon, so he will just have to live with it. (grin)

I finally got the borders put on my Raggedy and Friends quilt. I just went with a 3" red border. I tried to get a decent picture of it, but it wasn't easy. LOL
I had Kevin hold it up on the deck, but the wind was blowing, so it flapped around. lol
Then I decided to hang it on back of our metal door with magnetic clips.
This is the best I can do.

Then I got the borders put on Henrietta Whiskers. I still have to machine applique around the birds and stars in the border, and I also have just a bit of embroidery left to do on it. Then it is a flimsy too. ( By the way, I forget sometimes, that not everyone who reads this is a quilter. Sorry. A flimsy is just the finished top before it is sandwiched and quilted.)
Kevin tried to hold this one up too. Same results.
Now these two can join the pile to be quilted. I am almost done quilting the blocks on the Daisy Star quilt. Then I can start on the borders. I usually work on quilting while watching Biggest Loser, but I think it will be too warm tonight. So I will probably do some embroidery. I am 2 blocks behind on Birdie Stitches. Time to get those babies done. Here is a hoop of the Daisy Star.
Well, I guess that is it for me today. I want to get some things done so I can enjoy BL tonight. I also love the new show called Unforgettable. Thank you for visiting. Please come again. Have a wonderful evening.

I can totally realte to trying to get a quilt pic on a breezy day! Both quilts look incredible! I SO want to make the Henrietta Whiskers quilt. Your border choices were perfect!

Paula said...

They are both wonderful Winona! I can't get over how the details in the Henrietta Whiskers quilt just seem to *pop*- the colors and all the pumpkins are just so cute!
Thanks for the definition of a "flimsy"- I kinda thought that might be what it meant!
Hope you have a good night.

Those are lovely! You have been quite productive. I can identify with the photo problem. There is no space in our house large enough so I have to go to the park and use the chain-link fence. That means dealing with wind and shadows and they are never lined up square.

Great work, I can now say I have a few "flimsies"....I've never heard that before, I just call them "the tops" lol

I love windy days, but it does make it hard to photograph a quilt! LOL Both your quilt tops look wonderful! :0)
