Roll, Roll Cotton Boll top finished


I delayed adding the borders because I was afraid of the bias edges on those strip triangles.  But when I finally got down to it, they were only a little difficult.

Bonnie ended her directions with the diagonal strips on the edge of the border, but I have added a narrow navy outer border to match the inner navy border.  It will be trimmed to the same size after the quilting is done.

So now I just need to get the backing together tomorrow morning and then I can give to my long-arm quilter at our bee meeting in the evening.

Glad to have this off my hands!  It is certainly big enough for our queen bed with a good tuck under the foot of the mattress.
