Brown Baggin' it....(I know your saying, "Will she ever finish?")

Hello, again!  Just wanted to catch you up on the Brown Bag Quilt.... and the winner is...  Jacob's Ladder
Now just to decide if I should do borders or leave it.  This pic isn't that great as it was taken late last night, just after the last stitches were put in, and the pressing was done.  I just put it on the floor, climbed up in a chair and snapped it with my phone.  It had been a long day leading up so my hand may not have been so steady. 

At one point I did feel the need to get out of the house, so (or sew, hehehehe), I went to the movies, all by myself.  Solitude, ahhhhhh.... BUT I saw The Social Network, and can I just say....Do Not waste your time or money. :p  Granted, it was a drizzly day and I was in a dark mood, but please, people.... what WAS the point of making that movie?  Those of you who know me, know I never walk in without the popcorn, well I walked out with it too, and promptly put it in the trash!  Pardon the rant, just needed to get it out. There, ahhhhh........ I feel better now. :)

Anywho, if you've got any ideas about borders let me know, I think Melissa and I have the binding figured out, and I still haven't even measured it yet.  It should be 48x48, but we all know about those should be's.

Like we talked on the phone, I think a black border would look nice, if you wanted to make it bigger. And if you wanted to make it longer than wider you could use two different widths of fabric on the side and the tops and bottoms.

I really cannot believe what you've done with those UG fabs. They really were UG.

I've been surfing around brown baggin' world and yours were pretty challenging -- great job!

I know there's a story here, but honestly, I like the way this top looks! The pattern is perfect and I like the way the blue is sprinkled in there!! :)

I am glad that I challenged you with my ugly fabrics. Did you enjoy the challenge, or would you have rather had more coordinated fabrics? ;-)
