Little Bo Peep Sew Along-Final Border
Congratulations to Renee G who won the Karen Kay Buckley Perfect Scissors!
This week I added the final border to my quilt. I really like how the top has come out and now I will be working on quilting it in the coming week.
Remember when adding these final borders to measure the length of the border strips using the measurements taken from the center of the quilt; just like we did with the green border. No wonkiness from wavy borders that way.
One of the reasons I chose this size for the quilt is that I can get by with using the width of fabric for the backing. This cuts down on how much I need to buy to cover the back. I tend to back baby quilts with flannel; I just think it makes them more cuddly. I have a lot of yardage of Warm and Natural for the batting to use here as well. It tends to be my go-to for batting.
It has been suggested a couple of times now that the corner stars with the sheep in the middle would make a good baby quilt. I might just have to give that a go next and see what I come up with.

By the way, do you wash your flannel first?

Thank you, Susan. And yes, I do wash my flannel first. I prewash everything but the batting. I use a cotton batting and I rather like the look and feel it gives when there is that bit of shrinkage from the batting.
