Two of the 10 tops that I finished this year...

Well, I think this is the last of the tops for this year. It was at block stage for a while. As you can see, I just used the horse fabric for the border to use it up. That's all I had in Ash River. There is purple in the horse fabric...The rest will be the backing for the other quilt. I was hoping to use up some 3.5" squares, but didn't put a dent in them...BUT, I now have a "spare" quilt! Hope to start racking them up. I find it to be "o.k.", even tho I love scrap quilts.

This one is another horse quilt with the pattern Roy Rogers, from Quilting World. I did a brown one here.
Yes, I know there is a mistake, and I don't care. This one is for me. I am not thrilled with the layout for this either. I tried to find some navy for the checkered border and binding, but couldn't find the right color, so just used what I had, and that is a good thing too... I do love the colors, the binding will be purple...and it is a "maybe", if someone wants it...
I did have trouble with putting it together, which was frustrating, since the first one went together SO easy! got over the hurdle, and I think all will be o.k., but time will tell, when we do the quilting...
On to more UFOs and TONS of quilting...should be a fun week!


  1. You've heard the saying, "Done is better than perfect" right? I did crafts for sale for 14+ plus years and was always very hard on myself trying to get everything perfect, yet prospective customers never noticed what I saw as defects. Lesson learned. Then there's the idea of having a "humility block" that has a deliberate error, so who's to know??

  2. I couldn't find the mistake and I don't think it will be obvious to most observers. I like the colors in both quilts!

  3. I didn't see a mistake either. Very beautiful
