Vintage Red a Completed Quilt Top

Vintage Red only needed a little bit of attention.
Vintage Red
Sometimes I have to be in the mood to add on a border. I mean, really, really in the mood....
My kind of fun...
Not that it was difficult, 'cuz it's not like a pieced border. More like cut and sew. And well, some important measurements involved so the edges of the quilt won't be waving at me for the rest of forever.
And then it was a finished quilt top
But now it's all stitched together and I have to wonder... why did I put it off for so long? This quilt top turned out so much better than I ever expected in the beginning. Frankly, it was a slam dunk at this point. Just another one the crazy ways that I approach quilting I guess. Full speed ahead and then procrastinate for months....

  7. You did it again, just a wonderful quilt. You are my inspiration. I can relate to doing borders also and are so right about how important it is to get them even and flat.

  22. Woo hoo! I love the way the red border pulls out the red leaves even more. It looks great. It's not procrastination, you just have other priorities, that's all. At least, that's what I'm telling myself!

  24. It looks wonderful the red border is the perfect frame. But I know this borders are a real challenge, perhaps because it is a little dull to do it?

  25. What an adorable quilt! The red border is just perfect for it. I totally understand the procrastination of a border - one of my least favorite things to do but really doesn't always take that long! I've never seen this pattern before but so nice.

  27. This is great, Audrey! I seem to work in the same way ~ full speed ahead and then paralysis by analysis. Doesn't it feel good to see the top finished? I'm just wrapping up work on several family quilts and am itching to get back to more fun projects like this.

    I ask myself the same question. My tops sometimes stays in their basket for years without a border. I think I am a kind of afraid to finish it with a wrong border. Its mad - but thats how we are. Anyway I love your quilts so much. Especially this flowerquilt. Pia from Denmark, Scandinavia
