Finally Pieced!

My friend and I have been doing a "Quilt Along" the last few weeks and we have finally finished piecing the quilts. It seems like I have been working on these two quilts forever but it has been alot of fun! My quilty friend Angela and I are making the little quilt for each other in each of our fabrics. Her fabrics are so girly and adorable and mine are more masculine looking. What a win-win situation in our opinion!


I just finished putting on the borders this afternoon so now it is time to quilt them both. Angela is hand quilting my quilt, I am so excited, and I will do hers by machine. They both are going to look so cool. :D
Here is a close up picture of the border fabric. I had a hard time deciding whether to go with the blue color or the red but finally decided on the red. I think it gives the look a little punch.

I just love doing these quilt alongs and love to see how all the other quilts look like!!


Happy Quilting!

Oooo...the mini quilt is adorable! And love the red borders; definitely a win :0)
I have the components of the quilt-along linked on my blog, but haven't started yet. Your RWB version worked wonderfully.

Oh my gosh! I LOVE IT! The red is perfect!
I haven't actually started sewing my blocks together - so you're WAY ahead of me now!
Might have to start sewing more on mine, after I finish the pillow I'm working on... :o)
Beautiful!

Love your results from the Sew Along! It's fun to see the same pattern made in two different sizes.

I saw hers too, or I should say hers and the one you are getting. They have all turned out so pretty! What a great idea to trade too!
