I left off on this top after being disappointed that my choice for a border did not work.
Plan A had been to make the border from stash. However, nothing that I already owned really worked. I finally gave in and went shopping (oh darn!). And I am happy with my choice.
Guild has been in need of twin sized quilts the last couple of months, so it was time to get this one on its way. Someone else will be quilting/knotting and binding it, so I’ll not see the finish nor be able to show it here.
To visitors from Scrap Happy: This is at least partly a scrap quilt. The middle color is from my scraps and the kit was made up from guild members’ left overs. Other readers might like to view Scrap Happy to see what folks are doing with all scraps.

And during the quilting silence, I’ve been knitting squares for blankets for orphans.
A friend of mine had volunteered more than he could get finished, and I had time, so helped a bit. It would certainly be fun to be on the receiving end and be arranging squares from 400+ selection! The square was a perfect size for using up bits of left over yarn that had been seeking a project. You can see I have a few ends to weave in. Every craft has its dull moments.
