A Long Day

It is so late, and I have an early start for my workshop tomorrow; but I did want to make a progress report. I finished my Scrappy Bargello top, finally!, and got most of the back pieced too.

The back is not particularly attractive, but I used up most of the fabrics left over from the top, which makes me very happy! Now that I see the photo, something is the matter with the lower left corner--it looks like it pulls in a little or something, so I'll have to rip that out and redo it tomorrow. I thought I measured so carefully!

I also got all my fabrics washed, pressed, and cut for the Turning Twenty quilt. Cutting takes a lot of time! If the top goes together pretty quickly as I'm expecting, I might make another one of these. This pattern requires 20 fat quarters for the top, so it's a good little stashbuster.

I like your piano key border...what a great way to use up your fabric! and your backing will look just right once the quilt is done...have no worries!
