VCU Auction Quilt

Yesterday after dealing with the frustration of my mistakes
from Sunday,
I decided to do something easy
and added the borders to the
VCU T-shirt quilt I am making for an auction.

The top is finished!!

Sewing on borders is not my favorite thing to do,
but these weren't  pieced,
so they were pretty mindless to make.

Does a quilt ever "speak" to you
and tell you what it wants to be?
I was planning on making this one the "normal" way...
a rectangle...longer than wider.
However, this one said it was to be wider than longer.
I fought it and tried adding pieces to make it at least square,
but it said no.

So be it.

I ordered the backing fabric and will get this quilted
once it arrives.

The auction is May 1st.
It will be ready by then!

Happy Quilting!!

It looks great. I feel the same way about borders. Glad that it was a better day of sewing for you.

It turned out great. I get excited about borders because I know I'm getting so close to being done. This should bring a nice amount at the auction as loyal fans love their colors.

Yep. Know what you mean. Are we strange when we say a quilt talks to us???

It looks really great Ramona! This way, with it wider than longer, when someone has it draped over them while they lie on the couch, everyone can still read the t-shirts!
