Check out that orange border--1/8 inch! The other day Karen of Lee Haven posted her beautiful narrow border, and today as I was finishing the top of the Interpret This challenge, I remembered that, and also that Sally Collins talks about how to do tiny borders. So I pulled out her book Borders, Bindings and Edges, followed the directions, and they worked beautifully.
The top is ready for quilting now. That was my goal for the day. I'm spending the last four days of the week in Evanston with grandchildren and won't be able to sew, so I had to get at least this far to meet the deadline.
Another deadline is the one for mailing entries to the Smoky Mountain Quilt Show, so I have a label and new sleeve to sew tonight. That would be good Olympics-watching work, but I haven't been able to get interested this time. I don't know why; maybe I'll give it another chance.
