The colors in my photos aren't especially true -- the background is the light blue shown above.
Here is the beginning of the first border, there are two more:
I'll have the borders on in time for Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday!
Remember I was making a "BOM Block-a-Day" for the summer challenge? Today I made 16! They aren't very big (each finishes at 3"!) but they are 3D and are tricky to put together, so I'm counting each one as a block. I haven't decided how I want to lay out the quilt, so they won't be sewn together until all the blocks are done. I'm only on month 4.
These blocks are from Jackie Robinson's "3D Patchwork Block of the Month." I don't know if you can see it in the photos, but the center of each "bow tie" is folded so it's 3D.
I also made two more "Vintage Memories" blocks, this is month 7:
I also finished one more Ryokan block, but it looks like I forgot to take a photo! I'll save that for WIP Wednesday.
Last "hot" day in Colorado, tomorrow the temp is supposed to be in the low to mid 60s. Goodbye Summer!
