A quilt finish

We are having a fundraiser at work to benefit Second Harvest Food Bank and Toys for Tots. Since I work in the space biz, I thought the space panel would be a good jumping off point.

It is only a panel, and I wanted lap size, so played around in EQ and came up with an Attic Windows layout. The Stonehenge fabric worked perfectly with the colors in the panel (used for the window frame).

I like a skinny border before the final border, but didn't want to find more fabric for this, so went with the double skinny border, and I like it! When it got put on the center, I sewed the border strips together first, pressing some in and some out, so when I mitered the corners they snugged together nicely. I give it away on Thursday, hopefully to a good home.

Okay, I'm just a teensy bit jealous! Both of the sewing room, and of the quilt blocks. Those blocks are absolutely perfect! All of the seams line up fantastic. Very inspirational. Especially for me as I'm a newer quilter who is just starting my Farmers Wife quilt. I can't wait to see the finished sewing/craft room (as I'm sure you can't wait either).
