A Hint of Honey
This top finishes only 73" and I am also trying to resist adding a border, pieced or otherwise. Borders on antique quilts were common enough, but amazingly if it wasn't narrow, the border was often only added on one, two or three sides. The longer it sits unquilted the greater the chances of it having a border added. I will take my chances. It's certainly nothing to worry about.
I spent yesterday getting some tops ready to quilt. I need to get them done for the next book. I won't start them though till the sampler I'm quilting now is done. So, if I don't post much, you will know what I am up to.
My honey is thinking of keeping bees in his retirement and noted the honey colored background in this quilt. And it sure looks yummy to me. He likes it too.
