Bushfire Stars Flimsy

How was your weekend?

My weekend slipped by way too quickly. Saturday morning was filled with errands, dropped of the Spring totebag (see last post) down at the quilt shop in the afternoon... of course I did a little bit of shopping too *U* ... and babysat my cutie and youngest nephew, James, in the evening. Then Sunday was a work day. So I didn't get to work on the Bushfire Quilt Project until after dinner.

All I had to do to finish it off were to make two more side borders and attached them with those four 6" wonky stars that were made from last weekend.

TA DA....

I like how this top came together so nicely. It's made from scraps fabrics and the background fabric came from my stash. To "tame" the bias edges, I stay-stiched all the way around the border. This will be heading to Tia soon.

Wow! I have never seen a piano key border like that. It is stunning! Looks awesome!

My goodness - just turning those 'piano keys' strips on an angle makes all the difference in the world. It's a nice addition/change to a 'regular style' of border. Nice job.
