No 7 Another one in a plastic box can't remember its name aka mystery box......

OK before Ruby Red Lips I pulled out what you called the Mystery box on the list..........Another Nundle retreat quilt..........this time only 2012......only 5 years old...............
white and bright this one.............three rows were joined in strips.............row 2 a work in progress............
Pattern is Hanky Panky by Abbey Lane
Fabrics Hello Luscious by Basic Grey
it's got lots of bias happening..........Oh my lordy beeeeeee............took longer for all the pinning.............
Clearly I had plans to add borders and compared to the older quilt I actually scribbled some notes down on paper..........

What do you think?????
Left or right............just bind with the green or add the borders on the right.............with the green binding..............
As is it is 60x72in........
Also I need to add some squares on the white patches but not sure if I will add them now or after quilting........Mine will be lots of he same fabrics in the blocks......I'm not adding the squares that are supposed to go in the centre of the blocks.........I love the big print blocks.............
OK must head to bed...........back to reality tomorrow but I sure have enjoyed my "nothing time"..........Gail calls it un time.......I call it nothing time as I want to do nothing for anyone...........have nothing planned..........do what I want, nanna nap if I want etc............easy time.........
6 quilt tops in 5 days................never been so productive ever........ok back to reality..........
Catch you later......

  8. What an amazing effort getting that much done! I prefer the wider border option on the right with the red bias but then perhaps using the green to bind that patterned outer border. Lovely work - really like this one!

  14. I remember when you started this one. I think the border on the right finishes it off nicely if you have enough fabric. I’m back to my grown up job today as well. Such is life.
