I finally finsihed (!!), straightened and bordered "Blues-ey" this afternoon; I tried out about four different borders (ribbit, ribbit--bleh!!) . Decided that this one picked up the scrappy blue toile inside....this has turned out to be a LOT BIGGER than I had planned: duh: 62" long by 50" wide....
Here are a few of those favorite old fabrics I used & the border:
I've had a lot of these scraps hanging around since the 70's!!
Don't you love that wild daisy? And of course my music fabrics....
I am happy with my outcome--when I realized JUST HOW MANY PIECES I had to cut and sew, I never in the world figured I'd finish this...(welll, almost--the top is DONE).
NOW for the backing....(hmmm, I wonder how long that will take, hehehehe)
Here is my newest grand-doggie dozing on his Grandad's lap: She just loves him to pieces....
Au Revoir, from your (not singin' the blues) Julierose, La Blageuse :--}}}}
