Progress

How cool it is to be living at this historic time.  God bless and best wishes to our new president.

In local news, I have been working on the red paisley quilt.

It looks pretty good with the dark red sashing and border. I plan on adding another border made from the print fabric, and then it will be ready to quilt.

I am not as happy as I expected to be with the light borders on the blocks. A darker tannish fabric would have matched the paisley better. I may tea dye the whole thing before I quilt it to blend it in a little better.  Well, soon it will be finished and hanging on the wall behind the paisley bed.  Imagine this quilt in this room:

It will look much better than those battling elephants, don’t you think?
