Starting a new quilt is usually good for whatever ails me, and so is retail therapy. I've gotten about 20 large four-patch blocks done, half what I need, for the pink and brown quilt. Then I decided I'd better buy my border fabrics before they're gone, since that's usually my luck. The brown tone on tone will be the inner border, then the white, then I can't make up my mind about the outermost border. So far I'm leaning towards the one at the bottom of the photo. Opinions? Also picked up a stack of other fabric at the quilt shop.
Starting a new project often motivates me to work on an older one too, usually because I need the space on the design wall, so I continued on the snowman quilt. I finished all the machine applique on the snowmen two nights ago, so the center of the quilt is now complete. It didn't take me as long as I thought to do the machine applique, and I really, really like the way the blanket stitch looks. Now I just have to add some borders. My outer border is a dark green, so now the navy blue background in the corner star blocks is lost. I guess I'll change it to either red or mabye a lighter blue, if I have any left.
