The center of the quilt top is finished and the borders are added. It's a little hard to tell here on the design wall, but the outer border fabric is a white with multi-colored dots. In the pattern, there are vines, berries, leaves, and birds appliqued into the upper left and lower right corners, extending along the borders in each direction. Here are the pieces I've prepared for one corner:
And a very small start on the pieces for the other corner:
I was quite tempted to stay up a little later and get the pieces for the first corner glued onto the border, just because I thought it would be a little more exciting for you to see, but darn it! It's just too easy for me to stay up half the night playing and then experience that 7-a.m.-get-up-and-go-to-work remorse, so I'm exercising my better judgment for once. If you're not a regular reader of my blog and just hopped by from Anne's blog to see all the quilts, come back in about a week and I'm sure I'll have it done--the quilt top, anyway. The quilting itself will probably take a little longer. Still, I have another 280 days or so to get the quilting done, right?
