Working on two..............

I spent a half day free motion quilting on this quilt with black thread.  About 2/3 of the blocks have black in them and I was just following the printed design for the quilting.  Then I did the border which was basically meandering around and between the motifs in the fabric.  I still have beige, orange, green, and red left to quilt.
I sewed the triangle squares for a border for this quilt (which has been on the design wall in the main floor studio for almost a year) in January.  Last night I started sewing them together in groups of 10, 8, and 12 for two borders that need 38 and two borders that need 32.  Now I need to press them and then decide which group goes where and complete each border section.

Good morning, Wanda,
You are true inspiration! Your quilt thinking just flows from one creation to another. I have been of the school to complete a project before moving to the next, but look how many ideas one can miss by doing so.
Now I'm going to start working on a second quilt while my machine is in the shop. I hope you have the happiest of Decembers and a good report from your doctor. With thanks, Marnie Haines

Your Drunkard's Path piece looks really nice. I like those fabrics.

That's a lot of HSTs coming together there.

Your African wildlife top quilted with black thread is fun to look at, you have such a wonderful stash of fabrics. Enjoyed seeing your color wash and star tops again (yesterday). You have always accomplished more than anyone I know. Plus way more than anyone I know that has had pacemaker surgery !
