Fit For A King

I have been quilting since the 70's. Yes that's right I started in the days before the rotary cutter!
 Hard to remember what that was like, but anyway....My DH has been asking when I was going to make a quilt for our bed. We have a king size bed and I have been putting that off because of size. Well no longer. My bucket list just about has another item crossed off.  I have been making Sisters Choice blocks now for a while thanks to Bonnie Hunters method, and I am suprised that I have enough now for my bed!. My original thought was to just put on one black inner border and a green outer border.

before borders.....
I've also been making four patches as leader enders each time I  sew.
 It's amazing how those have piled up. So I got to thinking........
Maybe they should be my outer border.....
I really like how this turned out.

A little better view of the border.

One big quilt!

Glad I went with this border.

Now for backing and quilting!
Yep I do love the scrappy quilt!
This size however.... ONE AND DONE!
