At one point during our White Oak weekend Helen and I noticed the tremendous disparity in selvedges. She's holding a bit of fabric with a selvedge that is approximately a quarter of an inch. The one on my fabric is about seven times that.
I don't imagine this is interesting to anyone other than Helen and me, but I'm posting it anyway.
I've no idea why, but I've been thinking of restyling my blog and going back to two columns and going for a simpler look.
The more I think about Justin's quilt, the more I think that a border is the wrong way to go. I consulted with No Blog Emily this morning and she agreed that a border would be all wrong. Her suggestion was to add two rows of blocks to the bottom and see how I like it. That would make a square quilt, about 63 x 63, generous enough to use for a nap. Or a tablecloth. I think she's right.
On Wednesday I'm taking Cinnamon Latte and Second Hand Clothes to the machine quilter. Interestingly, they are two more quilts that are better without borders.
It's one of those weeks. When I looked at the calendar on Sunday evening, I thought, "Oh, good: I only have to be out two nights this week." Make that four. Sheesh. All for good things. But too many too close together. Sheesh.
