The Borders are ON

I probably should have pressed this before grabbing this snap:

Borders on!

The border fabric I made yesterday has been sliced and added to the scrappy geese quilt (with a small strip left-over for the pieced backing.  April's UFO is now two finished tops–this one and the checkerboard picnic quilt–and I'm almost ready for some more free motion quilting.  Although I have made changes in the design along the way, I've always known how I wanted to quilt these geese.  I can't wait to get the back pieced and the quilt layered and basted so I can begin.  Can I get a whoop, whoop?

You can get a bunch of Whoop-whoops! The border is wonderful, and just what the quilt needed, although I didn't know it last time you showed it.

Definitely a whoop-whoop. It looks so different with the borders on!

I've been figuring how to place some flying geese I made last year which have been wintering in a box in the sewing room. This is a great idea and a strong possibility for sometime soon (I hope).

So it's right up my alley!
