This quilt was started as a leader ender. How fun it is when it gets to the point when there are blocks to sew together! I also enjoyed remembering that many of the scrap pieces were from years of many other quilt projects.
I decided to use all purple in the border instead of scrappy – it brought a cohesiveness to the quilt that I rather like.
Something I rarely do – I hand stitched the binding down! I brought it with me on vacation and worked on it in the evenings. How nice to come home with a completed quilt.
We were in Southport, NC overlooking a marina. I couldn’t resist the photo ops with the finished quilt. This big rusty boat was fun to look at – and boy was it rusty! It is a working boat that retrieves copper from the ocean floor. Obviously boat body maintenance and pretty are not part of their agenda. I was very careful and my quilt came away clean.
