After all of the actual cleaning I have been doing I made time to work on the next quilt which needs finished before the end of this month. I have completed the two longest sides of the quilt which are the flying geese blocks and am now finishing off the top and bottom flying geese borders.
Coming along nicely, don't you think?
I believe another 2.5" border of black will set this off just great. What do you think?
I was worried that I may have taken Kaffee Fassetts' "Plaids Squared" pattern too far and possibly ruined it. It does look rather busy, possibly the planned additional outer black border edge may just make it all right.
I am getting excited to see how it will all look once I have the top finished. Then comes the agony of choosing a back, I always have problems choosing the backing for my quilts, each fabric I pull I agonize over, but in the end well, the choices don't look too terrible at all. Hopefully this will be ready to sandwich and quilt next week!
Being booked for several days of senior care this month means no real sewing time while away from the house, but, with the current progress I believe I will have it finished in time.
I had a horrible nights' sleep and am feeling a tad groggy this morning so if I sound funny you will understand why, lack of a proper nights sleep!
Thanks for coming by for a visit with me. I'm off to open all of the windows and let the wonderful air in, the rain is no longer and the sun is shining and the air smells wonderfully fresh. I wish you all a wonderful day.
