Proof in the Pudding
However, yesterday, I decided to add the border. It was such a lovely warm, sunny day yesterday, I stripped the bed and washed the sheets. I was voicing to DH, that I was in a quandary with this quilt. His suggestion was to lay Colonial Rose on our bed and then decide.
The old saying of Proof in the Pudding is apt. Due to the size of Colonial Rose, I simply do not have the space to add another border. From the top two pictures you can see I can have Colonial Rose, on the bed, either way.The overlay in the third picture, I will need to tuck this, under the mattress, or cover the pillows with the quilt. The feature is the central part of the quilt. I wonder how many hexies are now in Colonial Rose? I have twenty rows, to cut, stitch and sew to complete this quilt. Will keep you posted.
Tomorrow, I am going to the Millrose Gathering Quilting Retreat. Looking forward to going, but apprehensive at the same time. Life has been busy, our Jess had had her knee operation, and I have been running back and forth with her. In the middle of this, my MIL decided to come back to Victoria for a holiday, so have busy caring for her.Hmmmm I am longing to take the caravan away, for a rest, but cannot see that happening for sometime,.
