Many years ago, I pieced the center of this quilt. I was trying to reduce the fabric stash, didn't happen.
The quilt center laid around here for years, I never could decide what fabric to use for the border.
I had errands to run in Shipshewana one day this summer. I took the pieced center along, stopped at Yoder Department Store and showed my problem to my friend Nancy.
She took one look at the center and said Kansas Troubles. We walked over to the shelf of Kansas Troubles fabrics and she pulled out approximately 10 bolts for me to peruse. I decided on one of the lovely reds.
During the rainy week several weeks ago, I sewed the borders on the center. Now she is a finished flimsy and I don't even have to quilt her!! She will be hand quilted and donated to a fund raising auction for the school my Pennsylvania grands attend.
Yes, another project crossed off the list!
