More progress

 Not quite as much progress as I'd hoped (half term will do that to anyone!) but I have managed to put my final 'bow tie' border on.

Keeping on with the 'randuko' (that's Avril's newly coined word for random / Suduko scattering of items - in this case the grey centres of my bow ties and the background creams and whites*)  I'm quite pleased with how it's coming along.

I'd be even more pleased if I hadn't made a mistake putting the borders on, resulting in an interruption to the alternate white and cream background squares - doh!  I did consider correcting it, but the prospect of so much stitch ripping didn't really appeal to me, so I'm just going to consider it 'one of those things' and learn to ignore it!

At 56" square it's hard to take a flat photo of it in my craft room as it currently is.

Still, what the photo does confirm is that I'd like to frame the quilt with a scrappy blue border.

Time to get cutting the rest of those scrap fabrics into little strips!

* I've also been randukoing couscous (scattered cucumber and cheese cubes in packed lunches) and rice salads.  I'll be using the art of randuko on my border strips too, I'm sure!


  1. My gosh Plum what a difference the new border makes, WOW. Love love love it. Hugs Glenda

  2. This is beautiful!! What a lovely quilt top. Can't wait to see the next step. Blessings, Gretchen

  3. Quilt is beautiful. Bunny

  4. I love it! It's great to work when you don't know how it's going to turn out and when it turns out stunning like this it's even more exciting!!!

  5. Beautifully done! I love the neutral bow tie blocks, very different!

  6. Plum it's a stunner, I really love it and ANY progress IS progress. That is my mantra and it's true :)

  7. Randuko rocks!!!! It's looking fab! I never think to continue the pattern outside a border, but it's worked really well xxxx Only a few days left of half term!
