|Auditioning potential border widths before cutting my fabric|
|'Leap Year' laid across our bed|
So I've decided to add another border of 16 patches around the outside and a final outer border of the blue fabric. That should make it plenty big enough. This fabric line is Wiscasset by Minick & Simpson and is several years old, but I lucked out and managed to find one last Layer Cake online and a few yards of the blue, which should be enough to finish the quilt. Both of those purchases should be in later this week and I can hopefully get started on it again.
Like most of the country, we've been experiencing record breaking high temperatures and no rain. In fact, we just finished 7 days in a row of 100+ degree temperatures. Everything's been drying up here, which is why I was shocked to see my Asiatic Lily bloom this year. It's looked as sickly as everything else and I was convinced it wasn't going to bloom. (It's actually supposed to bloom in the Spring.) However, it surprised me and started with the most glorious blossoms this past week and more are opening every day.
|Love Story Asiatic Lily|
I will be filled with joy because of you. I will sing praises to your name, O Most High.
