Happy Days BOM - current status

When I snuck away for a weekend of stitching with Judith, Di and Trudi over the late May bank holiday, one of the projects I worked on was adding borders to my Sarah Fielke 'Happy Days' BOM from 2016.

In an attempt NOT to let this quilt get larger than I can handle,  I diverged from the border options that were part of the BOM and did my own, very simple, thing.  I surrounded the centre of the top with a half inch inner border in green and then finished with a border of low volume rectangles.  It's not rocket science, nor particularly remarkable, but it does what I wanted it to do and that is keep your eyes focussed on all the hard work I stitched into the various techniques of the quilt centre!

And now, this pretty will take a rest until I clear some other WIPs and maybe finally decide if I want to hand quilt her (which I think I do).


  1. what a wonderful quilt so much to see and admire in this and your borders work so well, enjoy hand quilting it will be interesting to see how you go about it, I enjoy hand quilting but have not tackled large quilts

  2. This is so beautiful. Th borders work perfectly too. x

  3. Gorgeous!! Love the low volume border. Success with the quilting!
