In the meantime, I found the time to add borders to the Kokeshi. I try to cut borders before anything else, but I forgot this time. Of course, I ended with little fabric left, so I add to do come computation and sewing to add those borders. And an error while cutting was not an option, believe me! But here it is.
I mentioned I was tempted by a pieced back. I still had some doubts, but a visit to Stash Manicure, and the kind answer of Sarah, of Confessions of a Fabric Addict to my question convinced me that a pieced back was what I needed and wanted to do. I had earned me a free Friday afternoon and was very motivated. I've used the floral leftovers from the front, together with a pale lavender leftover from a previous quilt. And here it is.
Money saved for a future quilt, and a stash manincure. Isn't it great? I even have quilting thread left from the same pale lavender quilt... Now I need to purchase some batting and find the time to quilt, but that is another story.
I was very motivated indeed: I went to my sewing room at 3 pm, it was almost 8 pm when I reached to my patchwork bag to put my finished work away. Suprise: the bag moved. A very bored cat had found herself a nice place to sleep...Note, this is not the one from last week.
