Bobbin border

I'm posting from my IG account...only picture I have of this quilt top. I'm NorthernDebQuilts and private but you can request to follow. The bobbin blocks are from a Cotton Way pattern, altered to suit my quilt. 


So I'm done with the bobbin border and am happy with the results. It adds just a little interest to it and what good are spools of thread without bobbins?
So now it's time to find a backing and get it basted. Since I have no idea what I want for a back, this could end up in the UFO closet for a bit. 
This is my first completed top done from following along the Rainbow Scrap Challenge of 2017 with Angela at www.soscrappy.blogspot.com

August beige blocks


I finished the August tan blocks (Rainbow scrap challenge) ...then I decided to make the orange and pink spool blocks so that I could get this spools quilt finished. But, now that the top is together, I think it might need a fun border. Maybe some bobbin blocks bordering the spools?


And these are the rest of the tan/beige/cream blocks. 

Now back to my other SIX projects.....

Color & UFO for August

It's AUGUST and we have a new scrappy color....TAN! Tan, beige, cream or off white....this could be fun. I know I have plenty of scraps in this color.
And what is the AUGUST ufo? Number 8! For me thats my scrappy blue Kaffe log cabin quilt.
It needs borders, quilting and binding.

And here's my favorite little guy....who can resist that face!!
