Yep! It's true. I am bordering on insanity while bordering my Insanity quilt. It seems an endless task going round and around , hexie by hexie. To make matters worse, I have almost run out of the background fabric! Remember how I was preparing the hexie flower with the background fabric around them? Well, I am glad I only did 10 of them because I now have to reverse sew them all!!! Grrrrrr. Not happy. I figure they will stand out from any new fabric I happen to find. So, my plan is to get some new background fabric for the next lot of borders and that way it will look like it was planned that way. I guess I shall just need to spend a few extra hours unpicking and redoing. I am having problems finding similar fabric of the same tint. There are yellow whites, cream whites, white whites, beige whites etc etc etc and it is doing my head in. Thus my quilt so far.......
I have been working on the borders every night while watching TV or DVDs but have also finished Gail Pan's freebie Spring stitchery. There is another stitchery peeking out underneath but it is hidden for a reason. Hehehehe.
This afternoon I started a cute Red Brolly freebie Easter stitchery.
For a moment I thought I'd also run out of the purple border fabric for the Insanity quilt but after much scrounging around in my sewing room I discovered a couple of metres of it. Wish I'd found the same amount of background fabric too.
It's times like these I remind myself that it is "patch" work after all.
On that note I wish you all Angel Blessings..
