It is Friday and I'm doing my happy dance, well maybe I'm just sitting in front of my computer typing, but I'm still happy. I have finished my Texas Road Trip QAL top except for the borders. I've been really unsure of what I wanted to do, but I now have a plan...or at least I think I do. I am going to take it to my local quilt shop and audition a second border, and I'm thinking very hard about white/cream. This will be a very small border only 1-1 1/2 inches wide and then I will do a wider border of the purple bike print. If I can't find a color I like, I may switch everything up and do a scrappy border with my leftover fabrics. Either way I go, I'm hoping to get figured out next week. If you missed my earlier post this week, here it is as it stands now.
Now I didn't get anything quilted this week because I was working hard on the Texas top as well as putting those 388 1" squares to use. So far I've used 298 of them and only have 90 left. I was very afraid that it would take forever to do them, but it really has gone very very quickly. So I've gone from this
But that is as much as I can show you for now. I've got to finish my snowballs and do some cutting and pressing, and then I will be ready to assemble my blocks. I did put one block together already because I was a little afraid that if I was slightly off (like on the top right corner of the photo above), it would be bad. But my finished block looked good to me. So I'm off and running.
