The Sunshine Frolics top is done !!
From first stitchery stitch to finished top in 5 weeks.
I can tell you these last 4 weeks has been very wet - it has been raining every day.
I had to shop for a new border.
The border in the kit was only a 40” piece, and the inner part of this quilt is 45” !
I see that the designer write that you have to join pieces to get a long enough border, so the shop has only followed the enclosed material list.
However - when I put so much time and money into a quilt I am NOT willing to join pieces to make the border long enough - especially when the border is a fabric with printed roses!!
Here is the fabrics that came with the kit. First a green border that had to be joined to suitable length too, and then a floral on pink and a red and white stripe for binding.
Here is my new choice - no green first border, floral on cream background for the one and only border and a pink binding.
I want this quilt to look light and romantic :-)
The light green you get a glimpse of is the backing.
I will machine quilt this quilt myself, but not before after summer.
I’ll tell you more about the shopping trip tomorrow :-)
