My Chopsticks top is sewed, the sides have been cut and it is ready to go to the quilter's. I have been practicing my FMQ but we still are not getting along. I am still trying to convince my DH that, that would be a great thing for him to do. I decided to leave off border, because the quilt felt finished. The original pattern does not have borders either. I also tested it out on my dh (he's good for a lot of things) and it is a good lap size for him. I am linking up with Can I Get A Whoop Whoop at Confessions of a Fabric Addict and to the Virtual Sewing Room at Amylouwho.

Lol - you'd think more men would gravitate towards free-motion quilting when it involves putting pedal to metal, punching holes at a fast pace and working without directions…. (Terrible stereotyping! Bad Carly!)

It's just gorgeous. Good call on the borders.

It's a really nice finish. How did you find the pattern? I have it and I need to make it. Any pointers, or is it pretty straightforward?

Can't wait to see the finished quilt. You are right - it doesn't need a border.
