I have one more block nearly done but ran out of time yesterday. I need to make at least 9 more, possibly 13 more. I'm hoping I can get by with a 1" coping border. Beth sent me a formula to use but it was coming up with a 5" border. I realized the applique part is 26" and I could add 3 9" blocks and they would equal 27". So, couldn't I do a 1" border and have it work? That's what I'm thinking. Of course, I'm going to have to find more of that luscious goldy yellow. I don't have much. Or, I have a print that all the colors were taken from. I may need to audition it as the little border. Or at least use some of it in the blocks. I think the blocks need to be a bit lighter -- what do you think? And more pink. Do you have any favorite 9" blocks you'd like to suggest. I'm hoping for something more involved than a 9 patch but not a million pieces!

I'm traveling this week so I may not get all of these goals completed -- but I should be able to work a bit on all of them. I'm looking forward to snuggle time with Sophia. I haven't seen her for 6 weeks. I wonder what she is saying now!
Happy Quilting All!
