A Flimsy and a Confession

The Tumbling Charms quilt has reached the flimsy stage. I went with the turquois border and used the same fabric on the back. When I auditioned the border I realized that the blue green fabrics in most of the blocks really showed up with this border; it has a more cohesive look than if I had used piano keys. I think the dark fabric in this quilt (unlike the other quilt I made like this) made a difference and it needed one fabric to pull it together.
My Bernina is ready to pick up and I will soon be quilting this.

When I posted a picture of my patchwork hearts the other day I told a little lie. I said I was going to make a table topper or a banner. I really made valentines and sent them to my Basement Diva friends. I had not posted anything for a few days and they were the only things I had for a post so I wasn't completely honest I lied. However, I am thinking of making more and making a table topper or banner; that false explanation gave me an idea. We'll have to wait till next year to see if I follow through.

 I had one left and I hung it on my bulletin board

Liar, liar, pants on fire!!! hahaha Personally I think that was a better idea for your hearts, to give them to friends. You MUST be forgiven for that. I love those scrappy blocks in your quilt.
