Jewel Box Borders and Basting

Yesterday I added the borders to my Jewel box quilt, a small inner white border and an orange flower print from the same fabric line as the outer border.  Last night I also prepped the backings for all the completed tops on my third quarter Finish A-Long list and picked out the right size batting for each one.

So this morning and afternoon, with the help of my daughter, the pin closer, we basted four quilts:
the Jewel Box
the Fat Quarter Stars Quilt
Baby Cakes
and my Strip Tube Top

Momentum is good and going strong for this quarter's UFOs.



  1. Awesome! Basting is not one of my favorite jobs, but it is one step closer to getting them done, way to go!

  2. Ooh, such productivity! I can't wait to see them finished. I spy some Reunion fabric there.
