No more flimsy excuses!

I told you I was determined to get the borders on this quilt today and I did!  I am so glad that I decided against going with a coloured border.  I think some of the colours would have looked great but I really think the cream and black make this quilt top all about the stars and that is what I wanted.
I am actually quite enthusiastic about getting this layered and quilted.  I am now trying to decide whether I should use a coloured thread or cream.......again I am thinking cream.

I am still planning a tutorial on these stars.  Tomorrow is Gumnuts (my quilt group) during the day and then a school meeting at night so Thursday is going to be tutorial day.  

Till next time.................happy stitching!
