Barbed Wire Quilt
I worked hard on this quilt. The border required 364 pieces! I love this border pattern. But it's too pretty for this funky quilt middle. The middle is made of leftovers, and the strips were cut several years ago when I wasn't as good at cutting. Man, were they off! I had to patch and mend in order to get the middle and the border to work together.
It was a chore.
Then I took this picture and decided the border looks like a barbed wire fence. Not the result I was looking for.
Maybe I'll like it better once I get it quilted.
Things I'm thankful for:
1. a warm house (it's currently 6 below zero, F)
2. beautiful blue skies
3. my camera and the ability to take nice pictures
5. wishes, dreams
