She Was Right


 
Saturday at Bee, I sewed these blocks together.  I had made them a few months back to practice sewing with my shirt fabrics.  I only had 20 blocks which made the top 40 x 50". I knew I had a 2XX plaid shirt that I could use for the border. 
 
 
Connie suggested that I use a narrow inner border to separate the outer border.  I found a blue with some sparkles on it and it was just enough.      She was right  - she usually is.


This morning I sewed the borders on and I do like how it looks.  It will be used for a veterans quilt eventually.  It now measures 49 x 59".   Thanks Connie.
