Finally a Flimsy

Orca (Flamingo) Bay has been sitting in pinned rows by the machine for several weeks.  I sat down today to get all the rows together.  I hope the border will help to calm it a bit, as there is quite a bit going on here.  I think all the kids have dinner plans with friends.  How odd that they would all go out without us. I was going to hide out and sew, but I guess now I'll have to be hang out with my husband instead.

Looks great. I do think the borders will tame it a bit. Enjoy your 'date' with your husband!

The flamingo flock looks wonderful, corraled or not by the border. Congrats on getting so far!

I love it but it is a little on the busy side, isn't it? I'm sure you'll find the right border to calm it down. And I'm sure you found some hand sewing to do while you kept your husband company.

Looks great! Mine looked really busy too and I did find that adding the border did help to calm it.

They do tend to be a bit hyper, but the borders do calm them down, and I'll bet the quilting will too, and they'll be awesome. The ones I've seen so far have been.

Oh very nice! That quilt is a lot of work, but SO worth it! From the ones I have seen so far, the borders do help calm the center, so you should be good!
