Mission Accomplished

I wanted to get the borders done on the second of these two 1930s quilts today, and I did. Woo Hoo!

Double 4 Patch

Easy Double 4 Patch

I had actually worked on these several months ago and had the borders on one, but quit before I finished the borders on the second one.

I had made the borders up, so it took a little to remind myself how I had done the borders before, lol.

It's not just me that does things like that, is it?

These quilts are from Mary's free patterns.  (The captions are clickable.)  They look very similar, but they're actually two different patterns and I'm very pleased with the way they turned out.

Now, I'm going to piece backs for both of them, and get them quilted up.  I'm thinking I'll use them as donation quilts, but we'll see.

On the home front, we resumed school at our house this week.  We cut back quite a bit in the summer, but I try to keep the old neurons firing so we don't have such a hard transition in the fall.  It seems to be going really well so far.

The three older children are with Daddy and Papa in the combines finishing up a field of spring wheat.  They should be home soon.

How was your day today?

ADDENDUM:  Look what I found to back these two quilts!  This ADORABLE piece of fabric designed by Darlene Zimmerman!  There's enough to back both quilts PLUS some left over to use in the Hummingbird quilt!
