Double Delight completed

Here is a picture of my completed Double Delight. I must say I like this quilt. I do understand why Bonnie choose the pink, the red is rather bold, but with red in my brown fabric I figured I needed to go with the red.
I stared another quilt this week-end and have just borders to put on. It will be a twin size. It measures approximately 64x80 with out the borders. I am planning on 4 inch borders before sewing so that will be 71x87 after the borders.
We were supposed to go over to Otis' house today to watch football, but we are having a terrible wind storm this week-end and I did not feel like going to far from home. We started out this morning, there were many traffic lights out and tree limbs blown on the streets and we decided home was probably the best place to stay. I completed sewing the binding down and worked on the other top.
I made a horrible dinner, split pea soup that just didn't work out right this time and horrible biscuits that didn't rise. I told hubby I am glad we have been married for so many years and this wasn't a dinner to impress or I would be very lonely tonight.
Have a good evening.
May God save America

Love the finished quilt. I love the red in it.
I know what you mean about the cooking. every now and again I manage to turn a triumph in to defeat. Mal bless him will still eat it without too much complaints though.

Love and hugs Gina xxx

Your DD is just gorgeous, Dot! I've had a few of those "not quite right" dinners over the years... my husband laughs it off; he knows where the peanut butter is kept, just in case.

It's beautiful, Dot. I like the red in it. Funny story about your horrible dinner.

Those blocks look almost like flowers. I have been having baking problems. It seems the door on my oven has sprung and my oven just won't hold the temp correctly. *sigh* Everything I try to bake just turns out horrible.
