Mt. Hood Update

It’s Friday, and time to show you my Friday Finish. While I don’t have a completely finished quilt, I did get the first inner border on Mt. Hood. So I’m counting that as my finish for the week! I managed to find fabric for the border in my stash. I need 2 yards of fabric for the inner border and outer borders. I think I might just make it. It will be close!

A photographer friend of mine recently posted a photograph he had taken on a visit to Mt. Hood in Oregon. The colors surrounding the mountain were beautiful! I remember the shades of blue and purple, so I decided to go with a blue fabric for the border. I think it adds a brightness to the quilt, and I’m happy with it.

Up next is a pieced border of hourglass blocks. I have not had great experiences with pieced borders in the past, so we will see how this progresses. The pattern is really well written, so hopefully I’ll be able to make this border work. My task for the rest of the afternoon is to begin sewing the 60 hourglass blocks.

I’d also really like to get something put together to hand sew tonight. I haven’t had any hand sewing for a bit, and I’m missing it.

We’ll see how much I accomplish!
