I'm laughing to myself about the title -- as if life lessons could ever be completed!
Life Lessons, hanging on our gate
The checkerboard border ties in the blue from one of the blocks that, previously, had stood out like a sore thumb. Sometimes you just wonder why certain fabrics are chosen by the store for BOM blocks! I could have bought a solid piece of fabric and saved a lot of time, but since time is no longer money in my world, and I have more time than money, that's why I pieced the front border. Ditto for the back border, below,.
Life Lessons, back
This lap quilt is 56x71, quilt-as-you-go-strip-by-strip. The fabrics on the back are leftovers from the "Going Postal"quilt.
