Weekend Stitching: Bordering Bejeweled

We are very thankful that the weekend ice storm wasn't near as bad as they predicted it would be.  The roads never got real bad, they were slick in places, but not glazed over.  There were a few power outages, but none affected us.  Still it was cold and miserable outside, so it was a pretty good weekend to stay home and sew.  

My January One Monthly Goal is to get Bejeweled sent out for quilting.  I'm halfway there.  The last of the borders went on just before dinner last night. 


 BejeweledFrom the book "All About Strips" by Susan Guzman

It's definitely outgrown the design wall, I'll try to get better pictures of the finished top next weekend.  Hopefully there will be some sunshine around then.  Drama Teen loves it. She's pretty sure her friend is going to love it too.  Now to figure out how to use the left overs to piece a back.  That's the agenda for this week.
