A Day of Finishes

So, I really got going on that Goofy Bear Button Bracelet and finished it up. I thought I'd put an edging on it, but I found that I really like the borderless modern look for this one. At one point, I had a pink picot edge. It looked like lace and seemed very little-girl-ish. Not that that's a bad thing, but I wanted a more adult, if silly, look for the thing. So just the button and loop closure and voila!After a very nice comment from Free Range Chick, I was inspired to finish Uphill Both Ways. I cut the final border in 2-1/2" strips from this fabric. I set aside the rest for use on the back. Then I framed the quilt with its final border--ta-dah!I was amazed to see how little fabric I had left from the strips I had cut:
Now, what'll I finish next? Hmm, maybe the laundry.

This looks great! I like the two different fabrics and the sashing arrangement.
