Getting Closer To Completion



The borders on this quilt have taken me longer than I expected.  Well, there are five borders, one of which is pieced.  I have four on the quilt now, just the last white border to go.  Maybe tomorrow.

I've been hindered by distractions.  This catalog arrived in the mail, full of new ideas. 



As a result, I've made four new quilts, though just in my head. Fabric and thread have not yet been sacrificed!

First, I have to make something out of the Rural Jardin line.
 


Second, I am loving Minick and Simpson's Bar Harbor line, especially this print:




Third, they showed this pattern, along with the Garden Party line by Blackbird Designs for Moda.  I think the pattern might be a free download on Moda's site when the fabric line comes out next month.



Fourth, I saw this pattern.  Perfect for some stash I have waiting for the right idea to come along.  The pattern is called Log Cabin Shuffle by Glad Creations.  I checked out the  Glad Creations website and found some more patterns I like.



Then, as if that was not distraction enough, I've been reading Why My Third Husband Will Be A Dog, by Lisa Scottoline.  It is a quick and amusing read, perfect book to take on the elliptical trainer.

All your background fabrics are very nice and colorful...and different in themselves.The border takes a long time to do and the look of the quilt depends quite a lot on the borders too.You have done a very neat job here.
