Thanks so much for all the nice comments on the progress of this quilt--I'm happy to say I got the borders on and will be piecing the back and making the binding today (I have a new resolution to make every single binding right as I finish each quilt top)! I love that this quilt is the perfect combination of whimsy and sophistication. The fabric I chose for the border is one of my favorite 12 Days of Christmas fabrics. Plus, I was lucky to find it at 50% off a little while ago!
I have a busy day planned for today--the first item of business is to clean my sewing room--it's a disaster area, really. Then, to reward myself for cleaning, I hope to stitch together a couple of quilt backs and make a binding. I'm hoping to also cut out a couple of new projects, and then I have two quilts with binding ready to be hand-stitched if there is any time left over. It seems that once July rolls around I'm always in the mood to work on things that need finishing up--because I'm eager to start projects for fall and Christmas about then!
Oh, and congratulations to Nedra who will be receiving the "Fit to be Quarter" ruler from Monique! Have a great day!
