A little more progress

Oh boy! I had hoped to get a lot more done on this quilt today but it wasn't to be.  I had too many errands to do this morning and then I came home and rang a friend and had a lovely chat.  Also last night Aussie Heroes went nuts on Facebook and we ended up with FIFTY new followers and some of that lead to messages and emails that needed answering.

So, all I managed to get done is the next border... but at least that is something right?
Yup!  and I am happy with the burgundy.  Next comes the border fabric and I think it will really make this quilt come to life. I can't do it tonight though as I have out put a join in it and it is a picture print so I want to think about where to join it.  Not a job for tonight!

This is just a simple nine patch but I really enjoy the secondary patterns that you get.  I did a similar one for Aussie Heroes using donated blocks and really enjoyed the results.  Imagine how different this would look with lights where the burgundy is and darks where the other squares are.  

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