I actually spent National Quilting Day working on a quilt! In my last post I showed you the progress I had made on Aidan's Star Wars quilt. I am happy to report that because of National Quilting Day the top is complete. On my way home from visiting my grandchildren in Huntsville the other day, I stopped at Hancock's of Paducah and bought these two fabrics for an inner border and binding.
Yesterday I finished filling in the black background and added a half inch inner border of orange before putting the Darth Vader borders on. I am loving this quilt!
Now, to piece the backing. I have these two pillow panels that I want to use on the back along with the Darth Vader fabric and some black and orange scraps.
I am really excited about getting this finished. I know Aidan is going to love it!
On a serious note -- I think we should have a MONTHLY National Quilting Day. Don't you!?!?
