The day isn't over yet, but I'm stopping for dinner.  I did managed to get the quilt top stitched and pressed and the first border sewn on.

I don't have a design wall, so it is difficult to show the whole top!  (This is one of the challenges of owning 2 small homes rather than one a bit larger - neither has a space for a good design wall!)
This is one quarter, and the narrow 1 inch finished first border changes colour as it travels around the edge.

The next border will be more black and white prints, and I'm planning on making it 6 inches finished width.

I still have some strip sets leftover after cutting the block quarters, so I think I'll use a block in the corners, then sew various widths of strips together to fill in between.

I baked 4 loaves of whole wheat bread today, and DH had the tree guys by to remove a large limb on the live oak tree beside our home.  It was hanging very close to the roof, and it was time to do some trimming.  I must admit that it was difficult to sew with the noise of the chain saws, and the sawdust flying everywhere....  They did a great job of cleaning up, and the house is much brighter on that side now!
