This is late because I've been off at a quilt retreat. Internet access was so slow -- rather sew than wait for the internet to come up.
Really, there is an excuse for buying 9 + yards of fabric -- borders. You all remember the million pieces quilt, right? I've picked an inner and outer border for it. Hopefully I'll get those on soon. I have a big piece of fabric for the background but will need to add to it so it is big enough. Then some quilting, a bunch of binding and a finish. I'm optimistic this will get done in October. And, wow, what a big finish that would be!
I've finished all of this quilt except the eyes and mouths on the girl and cat. This will be a donation to my local guild for a local hospital to use in the NICU. I wouldn't normally make a hand applique quilt for charity but this little girl was a long time UFO. I was able to buy some additional green and a brown to make a couple more rows of border to make it a smallish baby quilt. I'm happy to have her done and, soon, out of the house. I'll get a full picture after I get the faces on.
Retreat was wonderful. I'll have some photos of what I was working on and some of the other fun things we did.
Now, I'm off to read a little and take a nap. I'm adding "bring my own pillow" to my list of what to bring on a retreat.
