Blocks are Sewn

I have finished sewing the blocks of the THQA together.

I had to try it out on my bed.

For the borders I was able to find some more of the same, and similar fabric as the alternating squares, and I have decided that I will complete the diamonds that the alternating squares create for one of the borders (I will post borders ideas and instructions for the border I chose on Wednesday). I am hoping to start working on borders tomorrow.
I also ordered the wool batting, and bought the backing fabric and Aurifil thread for quilting. It is all coming together!

The rabbits have been entertaining us. The one that comes to the door (he has a little cross on his forehead - maybe he is a she?) has added 4pm to his regular scheduled visits - he is defending his property!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!

It looks so wonderful. I've been so busy that I never got to start mine and now I'm so sad. I think this is the best quilt that I've come across in a while.

You are inspiring me! I did three more individual blocks today. Just 6 more to go. And the alternating blocks of course. And the border. But I have the fabric and a plan. This quilt is my push for the week.
