Borders are on!

Hi friends!
Yesterday I added the side borders on the vintage farm quilt. Then I put a small border on the bottom. It's already a long queen size.
Plus after I looked I didn't have as much green as I thought I had.
So now it's ready to sandwich!
I have the backing and the battening so I need to do that so I can quilt it.
I made another one of these, When my daughter came down I gave her four , one for her and one for each of her three older daughters.
I guess I need to make one for Alisha to but she is still in school.
The tomato's are in the ground!
That's the last of the planting! Today he is out their putting tomato baskets on them. He makes his out of chicken wire and holds them in with  medal fence poles.
He puts that cover that keeps weeds from growing through it, Ha It does it any way.
Then he adds bark mulch over that . Lots of hard work!
He should get finished today and he plans to spend the next two days cutting the grass.
After sitting all winter it's really wearing him out.

Congratulations on your Farm Girl flimsy, Barbara. I wish I had made the larger size blocks. Can't wait to see yours all quilted and bound.

Your flimsey came out so well, Barbara! Beautiful job on this one.
It hit 90 degrees here today--too hot for the likes of me...
So I am inside under our ceiling fan hand quilting...hugs, Julierose said...

the green has worked perfectly. I must admit I would rather be in your shoes quilting than out doing what Tommy is doing, I am far to lazy for all that work
