Design Floor Monday

It took all of Saturday to get OMG It's  a Churn Dash ironed and ready for borders.
After auditioning several options, I decided on pink and teal.  There was enough pink for a thin inner border, but nothing with enough yardage for a wide outer border.  Off to the fabric store!
First though, I pulled some backing options.  All the new fabric has been through the wash now and after a bit more time with the iron, I'll be down on hands and knees again for the rest of borders and backings.  
Happy Martin Luther King day!  So happy to have an extra weekend day to play.

Love this quilt.
If I didn't have so many going on right now, I might just jump in and do one myself.

This is so pretty! It deserved a special trip to the quilt shop for just the right border.

This quilt is to die for! I love the rainbow of colors in an organized fashion. It reminds me of how I organized my Dear Jane quilt.

Lovely!
