SBS Borders!

A little bit of therapy sewing was in order, so I have started working on the borders for my SBS quilt. Anne Ida suggested I use the Right Hand of Friendship block as my inspiration, which was the perfect choice. This quilt was the starting point of a very dear friendship between the two of us and I think it is going to be quite effective:

I will be continuing with the "scrappy" theme as I am finally coming to the end of some of the fabrics I used in the blocks. Its nice and quick to complete, so hopefully in a few days the borders will be attached and I can start to plan the quilting!

I would really like to thank everyone for the lovely, warm comments, emails and SMS's over the last few days. I have tried to reply to everyone. At a time when things were so scary and traumatic, it was wonderful to reach out and receive such amazing support. Our family thanks you all!!!

  6. This is going to be great! Your sbs will be finished before mine. I have had to be very careful the last months, as my hands and arms have been aching...But I have started my border...

  7. I had not heard of the "Right Hand of Friendship" block before but I think it is wonderful on your border. I am going to have to look for the pattern so I can see how its made - unless you would care to do a little tutorial..hint hint.
