Yes, a couple more...



Here's one of the tops from yesterday - it definitely works better with a wider border, and the narrow blue frames it nicely, I think. It's still quite a small piece, and will make a good wall0hanging.



And this is the other thing I worked on yesterday, but I didn't get the batik stripe borders on until today. These tops have all gone together very quickly - even with sashing and additional borders, because the blocks themselves were all already made (including the blocks for the border in this quilt), putting them into tops is quite a quick process. These are 9" blocks from a batik & black swap - all the coloured fabrics are batiks (as are the border pieces). The blacks are an assortment of blacks and black-on-blacks.

I am down to just 4 or 5 sets of blocks which need making into tops - started with another group today, as it happens - I'd love to get all of them made up into tops by the end of the year. We'll see how that goes, though...

The small blue border along with the wider border on the outside works out very nicely. Both quilts look great!

That little tiny blue detail in the centre of the quilt in the top photo just makes the whole thing sparkle - and you can never go wrong with piano key borders - gorgeous all of them!

Wonderful Kate, it's amazing what a difference the borders make on both quilts.

Love the piano key border on the large quilt
