Applique' Border Finish

I couldn't show you what was on my design wall yesterday because I'm working on a round robin.  In the evenings I've been working on the applique' border on this quilt that you saw in an earlier blog post.  When I posted it before, I got several comments and emails telling me that I really should finish the other 3 sides of the applique' border so that has been my focus in the evenings.  This quilt is a UFO called Nine Patch and Hourglass and is from the Leisure Arts book Quick and Easy Scrap Quilts.


I hope you are all finding some time to stitch, too!  Thanks for stopping by for a visit.

Your pictures from the last posts are very nice and interesting. It must be great to see all these quilts naturally.
