"Row, Row, Row Your Boat"...

I kept telling myself to hold of from posting about this quilt again before it is all done, but...

First, I like the big blue border so much (Thanks Jacquie!), I had to share it with you.
Second, my spring break is over and nights full of reading and writing instead of sewing ahead of me.
Third, I am going to follow Jacquie's suggestion for the scalloped edge as well, but with the amount of school work ahead and the other quilt basted and in need of some quilting, I am not sure how long I would have to wait to post about this one.
So here it is...

I used up all my left over blues from boats. I am going to piece the back together sometimes this week in between work and school. I have some cool ideas running through my head.

P.S.:
Today, I used the basting spray for the first time. It's great! I can't believe I haven't used it till now. I am not too crazy about quilting, basting, and binding process of quilting. I prefer piecing the tops. Well, basting spray just made one of my less favorite work much faster. Kris helped me out with some questions and after her encouragement I was ready to go. Having everybody (including the dog) out of the house helped a lot.

Oh, this is looking fantastic! I love the boats and the pieced border is just perfect.

Hmmm... I might be convinced to try basting spray after this. Basting is my least favourite part in the quilting process.

I am Katny from Galveston, TX. Love your sailboats. I have been thinking of making one since we are on the coast. No GKs yet, but I'll make it anyway.
