A Flimsy Finish at Last! OMG yes the AES 😍

I finally finished the quilt top that contains all my Adventurously Epic Sampler pattern test blocks!

2 years in the making!
3+years of design 😱😡

The dogs seem to approve 😁

I was kinda winging it with the borders as usual but I love how they turned out!

I paper pieced the corners for the borders with 4 triangles, each was a half cut from an 18" square of paper.

And I just hand drew some lines with a pencil and ruler to make framing border corners.

They turned out fabulous and were worth the effort!

Don't you just love that feeling when you finally get to press a completed quilt top right side up!

Especially when it's been 3+ years work and you decided at the last minute plain borders weren't gonna cut it for your own sense of style!

But I adore this and can't wait to get it quilted and on the bed!

Check out where it all began in 2015 with this blog post: A New Challenge Sept 11 2015
