Carolina Crossroads Top

This is finally a picture of my finished Carolina Crossroads Top. I gave it a small pink border and a two block deep railroad fence border in the same dimension as the original railroad blocks but in a different color combination. MyGuy says it looks very green, but I told him spring is green. Now I need to dig out some stuff for a backing.

I have started the Orange Crush four patches for the next mystery. I found it hard to get started on this as I do not have 1,5 yards of most fabrics, I am more a fat quarter, half yard buyer. I am not sure if mine will work (contrast and one of them is fairly patternd), but this is stash, so I will go with it.

Oh, just like a bowl of sherbert. Aren't you pleased to have it done.

I found the Nancy Bush ring and joined it too. I will think of you each evening when I sit with my socks for an hour.

Like the way your CC top turned out - the border is terrific!!!
Thank you for visiting my blog and letting me know about the changed ring surf - don't know how I missed that.
Thank you!
