I only have one big work in progress this week. I'm determined to finish up my Bottled Rainbows quilt before I get moving on any other projects, like the cathedral windows quilt or the vintage sheets I was so psyched to get started on.
One problem... I've decided to make finishing my Bottled Rainbows quilt even harder by adding a border. So, I'm still not done with that one, but I am kinda happy with the progress. Please ignore my wrinkles! (And while you're at it, check out Rachel's finished quilt, the inspiration for mine.)
The center blocks have been joined, and the border pieces are loose. The stripes in the border were a happy mistake, because I cut one side too short, then I melted candle wax on another strip while giving it a quickie iron on the floor. But I like them a lot now, and can't imagine the border without a little flair!
I've also picked out some fabric for the quilt back. I have 4 yards, which won't be enough, but I'll use up some scraps or solids for the rest. Tufted Tweets: so happy to see you in my mailbox this week! Picked up at Contemporary Cloth for a bargain at $4/yard. I'm seriously rethinking my quilt binding on this one though. Might pick up a solid and go plain, or maybe some simple polka dots.
If you're feeling lucky, check out the Accuquilt GO! Baby fabric cutter giveaway on my other blog, Craft Buds! (Open worldwide; giveaway ends on July 4.)
I also wrote a review of the machine, which I love and think is going to be very useful in future quilting projects!
