Stripes is almost a top

This is as far as I'm gonna get on this quilt for a while... after my post about not thinking that the red floral would look so hot as a border several agreed with that decision and one friend of mine actually asked if I'd mail her one of the blocks so that she could use it to match up with something in her stash!

Sorta like a pay it forward - or stash busting depending on how you want to look at it ;)

I emailed her with a photo and wrote:
Hi Lisa, Take a look at what I finished putting together today while the twins napped... it's all together!!! Well all except that last block, and it is packaged up and ready to mailto you as soon as I buy a stamp...

Actually, I'm hoping to walk up to a car and borrow one from a mom friend in the carpool line today so I don't have to go to the PO - am I lazy or what?
Thanks again IowaLisa for offering to send me some fabric to use as a border if you have something in your stash that will work. I promise to repay the favor to someone else one day. ;)

Love from Texas!


  1. HA! That was my first thought when I read your post yesterday. I wondered if I had anything in my stash to match, but unfortunately my stash is dangerously low on reds and I don't have anything even remotely close. Quilters are a cool group of people, aren't they?

  2. LOL I love how you get stamps! :-)) *giggle* Your top looks great!

  3. Hi Bonnie! Thanks for stopping by my blog. And yes, as soon as we get our Art Quilt Challenge group blog up and running, I will let you know.
    We are going to post our journals that we are making along with our quilts. It might not be up and running until our first challenge is completed. But I will be updating on mine.

  4. Those blocks together look awesome Bonnie! Love it! Another thing to put on my list! 8-)
    Happy stitchings!
