Now do I put a border around it or maybe just use brown dimples for the binding. I probably have enough of the dark brown to do a border. I have a deeper blue from the fabric challenge to start a backing with. It will need to be added to to have enough. What do you think? To border or not to border? This is a 2.5" strip of the brown dimples fabric.
I like the way it looks but I know I'm going to need to make a bigger backing since before borders the top is 40" wide or so. Sigh. But I do like the dark edge. Perhaps a dark brown binding would do the same thing.
I did fairly well on my goals this week. I could have done better but we were out of town Friday and Saturday. And then Easter.... we sang at only one service but I came home and flopped on a couch and read (and napped) for most of the afternoon.

Finish Applique on OMG
Make backing for OMG
Sew top together Boy donation quilt
Work on Slide Show – put top together
It's not a long list as I'm going to be busy several days. My big goal is to finish my OMG quilt completely. (And, before the end of March which doesn't give me much time!) Anything else will be all gravy, so to speak.
I thought this was a cute picture of Ellie and Peka (Pat's name instead of grandpa.) We were all sitting out on the front deck of Kevin's house watching Ellie as her day care provider took last week off for her vacation. It was a great day to sit around out there.
