First up, thank you all so very much for your lovely comments - I have been very lazy answering you all, but do know that I appreciate each and every one of them.
Since my last post I've been working on the inner border of the NI quilt, and so far, I think I'm liking what I see :-) I've almost completed enough zig-zags for one whole side, but I have to put the stitching aside in favour of some chores for now.
When I was imagining how this border would go, I was certain that I'd choose tan and navy, but Jenny and I auditioned fabrics the other day, and we selected these pink and green fabrics which are the colours they used in the book. Looks nice, yes?
I'll be looking forward to getting more done ... I'll check back in soon :-)
