Half Way!!!

Woo Hoo!! This is my 10th block, I have finished half of the blocks. This is block 5 in the quilt. I just love looking at them all together.
I decided to start on the borders and work on them as I do the last 10 blocks. I applique by back basting so I have the borders all traced on the back of the fabric. A dreary, rainy day a couple weeks ago I made miles and miles of bias strips and got all of the stems onto the borders. I want to start with the cute little owls on the bottom border so I am auditioning fabric for them now.
Happy Stitching,


  1. Halfway is quite an accomplishment!! Your vase block is very pretty. I love to see all your blocks together.

  2. Good on you, they look lovely together. I know just how you feel about starting the borders,they are tempting.

  3. Yippee! How wonderful...it will be a downhill cruise from here!! They all look so lovely together.

    In stitches,
    Teresa :o)

  4. Cheri - well done and very clever of you to start the borders. It is nice to see them all together and they do look lovely.
