Piecing, and quilted!

Hiya, just wanted to check in and let you know that things are still moving along in my sewing room. It's my happy place, so I spend as much time as I possibly can in there ...

Since I last posted, I began cutting out what I thought was the next border for my Rajah-ish quilt, only to find that I'd gotten ahead of myself, and what I was preparing was for two borders time. It's not a big deal - I'll still use it, but I popped that aside and started on what was the actual next border:

So that's it there around the outside - the purple and tan hourglass border. It has been super fast to put together - and the next border will be a mirror of the one inch red triangles. There are so many seams, it's quite tricky to get all the points to line up - I'm trying to be okay with it when they're not perfect.

In other news, my lovely friend Lizzy has finished quilting on the HOQH top, and I'm entirely thrilled with how it came out:

It has been a super grey weekend, so I haven't been able to take any pictures that do the quilting justice, but when I can find some more light I'll show you the quilting from the back side of the quilt.

And speaking of the back, I promised to share the toile fabric I selected:

I have no clue when I got it or from where, but isn't it fun when you find something in your stash that you know you want to use.

The binding I've chosen is a blue and tan plaid - it'll bounce really well off of the setting triangles - I just have to wait for it to get here. I can be patient, I promise!

It's getting a little late here, and I still have to do my French lessons for the day, and a little hand quilting, then I can head to bed and rest easy. Chatter soon!

Your fabric selection is always awesome. Your borders are working so well together. Can't wait to see the quilting close up. Hope you get more sewing time this week.

Oh my God. I cannot believe all the piecing and it is looking fantastic. Your fabric choices are just falling into perfect harmony. Lovely. Can't wait to see the quilting on the other. I've never met a toile that I didn't love, your backing is fantastic. Thank you for taking me on this lovely journey.

The gorgeous blue toile is a perfect backing. Would love to find some in my stash. Enjoy the final stitching process!
