Rainy Sunday

I seems like it has been raining for weeks here and it looks like today will be another soggy day.  Occasionally we have had a few glimpses of the sun, but they are gone so quickly--more time to stitch!
Tomorrow (Monday) is the May Stitch Therapy meeting.
Since I had all the blocks finished, I wanted to get them all together for the class.
The pattern doesn't specify a border--what do you think???

The class "lesson" will be on making these stars.
They aren't the same angle as a Tri-Recs, so they are tricky!

I'm almost ready to put together a row on How Does Your Garden Grow thanks to all these rainy evenings!

  1. I think I would add a scrappy border using up the leftover pieces. Squares or rectangles or whatever you have left. It's gorgeous!

  5. Yes, a scrappy border like the one around the star in the house row. I'd put a 1/2 finished inner border of a dark or gold then the scrappy blocks. Gorgeous! Thanks for linking to WIPs Be Gone!

  7. Rainy days are perfect for stitiching. Your quilt finish is just wonderful. Will it be a wall hanging or a bed quilt?? Borders....I like Kathy's scrappy idea.

  12. I think a scrappy border would be just right for this quilt! It did not rain here so I ended up gardening instead of stitching today...

  17. I love rainy days because I usually get so much sewing done! I am a fan of borders (a great place to show off lovely quilting) so I would add a narrow inner border to separate the centre from the border and then add the wide border!

  18. Hello Karen! Your quilt looks fabulous and I don't think it needs a border... it looks lovely as it is! :) x

  19. I think whatever you decide will be right for you, it is lovely and you inspire me to make one of my own. One thing I might do is a scrappy binding might be interesting.

    Can't wait to see what you do and would love to ease pictures of your class is using.

    Thanks for sharing your lovely pictures of your progress.
