i.s.t.h. top done

After I got off the computer Sunday I picked out my fabrics for this top and got one star made.
Then Monday I spent all day finishing the rest of the top.  I ended up keeping the columns in, but I didn't make them scrappy.  I also added the side purple borders.  Mainly as a mental thing I have.  I felt like the checkerboard would fall out if it wasn't trapped in with a side border.

I am hoping I can get this quilted by March 1rst, but first I have to make two small tops for the girls at church tomorrow.  I have been asked to teach them how to tie quilts. Being the great procrastinator that I am, I still haven't even started those.  I better get sewing!



  1. This is so sweet! I love the way you kept the sashing as one fabric, and your border brings it all together. Well done!

  2. Your ISTH is beautiful! I love the cheery colors :-)
