Design Wall Monday

Its my favorite day of the week again, I love doing this link up with Patchwork Times, I love to see what everyone is up to.

I took some outside shots of the fabric in my current project this week as the colour sometime looks wrong in my previous posts of this quilt, the threads are all YLI varigated ones.

I only used one yellow fabric as there wasn't a matching yellow line of fabric in the collection

Anyway onto my progress, I have finished sewing the blanket stitch around the flowers of the corner blocks and have attached them to the geese borders, I was going to have a different flower in each block but went with the curly flowers in the end as they were quick to do.

I have sewn the two smaller borders onto the quilt top, they went on very well, I was quite worried they would distort when I did the blanket stitch on the applique and then not fit, but so far so good!

Unfortunately my design wall is now too small to put the quilt top on for more photo's!

Tomorrow I plan to finish sewing on the borders and then go back to this quilt.

There is not much quilting left to do and I can't wait to see it finished.

I love your colorful borders! Even the thumb tacks on your design wall are cheerfully colorful!

This is so lovely! Wish it were mine but I don't want to do one! Lazy person that I am!
