What's Up Monday

Can't believe it's Monday already. Here is the start of a new week and I have so much I would love to be able to accomplish this week.

To start off that list, is this string Christmas quilt I have been working on. I am down to the border, and I haven't decided what it is I want to do on the outside edge of the border.

Do I want to leave it plain and just have the binding as the edge fabric. 

Or do I want to add a strip of the background fabric, what I would call the background fabric, the light colored fabric all around the edge.
What do you think?

This is one of the four Get-R-Done's that I had thought I would do this month. I have not yet posted what my four were and always meant to. But somehow time got away from me this month. It just  flew by.  So this one, plus my candy wrapper, and the quilt I'm working on for my daughter that I'm quilting are 3 out of 4. I cannot remember  what the fourth one was. I think these three will probably be plenty if I can get them done by the end of the month.
For the rest of my week as far as what I have on my list of things to do, is getting my garden cleaned up and prepared. After being gone most of May and part of June, it really got neglected, besides the flower beds around the house.


  1. The plaids in your string quilt caught my eye. Nice look. I love plaids.

  2. It is easier to quilt it if you have the straight border on the outside, but it would look really great if you just bind it. I love the look your triple sashings give.

  3. Love Evelyn Sloppy's pattern. I'm making it too out of shirtings.


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
