closer to the finish line

Feeling so good about getting to this stage with this quilt!  It's a small quilt, about 38" x 44", but all the blocks are hand stitched using the English Paper Piecing method.  Last night I finished all the handwork and started on the borders.  Finished up the borders this morning and took it outside for a little fresh air on this beautiful morning.  This will be a class series that I will teach at Bear Patch starting in September and I hop to have the quilting and binding done by then.  Any bets on that?

The rest of this day is going to be spent sharing quality time with my husband, Bob, since we seem to have been lacking in days off together all summer long.  We have made a list of several things that we would like to get to do before the good weather runs out, so today we will cross something off that list! What is left on your summer bucket list?

I know you'll get it all finished, Pam, because you always do! Can't wait for the class to start.
