Two Finishes

The trim by Renaissance Ribbons arrived and I have used them to finish two small projects, the Rose Window and Barbara's Door.

I do like the look! This finished out at 18" X 18".

"Barbara's Door" uses two different trims.

I like this too....it's just more interesting to me than plain binding. The finished edges on the ribbon are a plus to work with, too. It measures 13 X 18". Barbara, it will be in the mail on Tuesday!

Now I am down to one ufo, my "Go Crazy" project begun last fall. But the colors are not right for working with this time of year...too autumnal!
So even though I am looking forward to making a new class sample for my "Home Portraits" class at the Victorian Stitchery Retreat next November, I really and truly need to make a flower quilt right now.
So that is what I shall do!

That's an interesting use of trims, Allie. How did you attach them; they don't look folded. I am sure Barbara will love that piece. I love the way you embellished the doily on the other one.

The colours of the trim complement the quilt beautifully.

Very pretty - those trims frame the quilts perfectly.

Some movies are very must close to our heart, and we wish to keep them forever. Without having to visit the theatres again and again, we prefer to experience them whenever we want to. Movie collections in terms of CD, VCD, DVD, Blue Bay formats let us do that. Visit www.buybooksonline24x7.com/Movies.asp for more details.

Bravo! And I love the jiffy finishing using those beautiful woven ribbons...I always think they're beautiful but wonder how to use them...This is a GREAT idea!

I love my door quilt! The border adds a lot of lovely detail and texture, and the timing of your finish is perfect. See my blog for some good news. XXOO.

Using the different trims as borders reminds me of Tibetan tangkas.
