I couldn't wait.

Two simple borders SURE make a difference, huh?
I just couldn't wait to show you all!!!

I love this quilt sooo much already!
I'm also dreaming about applique on that blue border.
Won't that be fun???

One GREAT thing about this quilt....
Everything was given to me or in my cupboard
EXCEPT...
that great Turquoise/blue gingham border!
I found that today, extra wide, $1.98 a yard!!
That was almost given to me.....right?? right.

  1. Wow, Beth, that looks amazing!!! It always surprises me (although it shouldn't by now!) how you can take next-to-nothing and come up with something fabulous!!!

  2. LOVE it! And I wouldn't do a thing but quilt it. The borders give the eye a place to rest, and the neighborhood is busy, just like mine! Do you have any of the neighbor kids honking for others?

  4. I just love turquoise and red together and little checks are perfect with the houses. I agree with Tara....I like the simpleness of the borders...like a frame for the houses .... great job!

  8. Those borders are just the right touch. Applique would be a great accent, too.

  11. The borders look great! Do you know the kids show, the Backyardigans? That's what this quilt reminds me of, a neighborhood where everyone's backyards come together and the kids come out and let their imaginations run wild. What fun if there were quilters in all those houses and they could congregate in the communal backyard to let THEIR imaginations run wild!

  12. So cute Beth! Your patchy first border reminds me of the sidewalks I used to play hopscotch on, many moons ago! Very creative and fun!
