1600 Quilt

I have not been doing much quilting lately.  I have been busy with a lot of other things as you all know. 

Quilting has been on my mind a lot and I have been itching to create something new, so when I saw Ms. P's 1600 quilt, I knew it was the one for me.

I started sewing around 1:00 this afternoon and finished at about 5:00 p.m. There were a couple pee breaks (the dog, not me), but other than that it was petal to the metal.

 


I read that someone whipped one up in 35 minutes!  I was happy with the 4 hours it took me!

I am not sure about borders.  What do you think?  I could use all the help I can get.




I would like to apologize for the way the post looks - I have not figured out the way this new blogger stuff works yet!!  Grrr....

Pin It Now!

I vote borders. That's me. I love a frame. I haven't tried that pattern yet, but I have a jelly roll that I might have to pull out. Lane

I've done several of these and LOVE them. I've done them with and without a border, and like them both ways! Aren't they fun to do???

I'm really going to have to do one of these nice. Sometimes an easy quilt is just what you need.

Way to go Cynthia. Arent they fun to do ? And so fast. That's what I loved about it.

I love the fabrics in your top. Im voting for a border. For me it just takes it to a slightly higher level visually speaking.

Im totally going to do another quilt like this soon!

It looks great Cynthia, isn't it quick to complete. I vote for a border too.
