Success!

  I have now finished my challenge for this month, and here it is!


 It has a light turquoise inner border, a blue main border and strong turquoise binding.  It looks better in the flesh than it does here.
 I was a bit worried about the binding, as it was very much stronger than the inner border, but I think it works in a kind of gradating way.  In any event, it's a FINISH, so hooray!

 And speaking of finishes, I've made decisions about the two tops I have as WIPs.  The granny squares have got a border - and a destination, since Andrew and Hannah have shown me their 12 week scan! 

The other top has gained a few more blocks and a narrow border and I will be asking some of my quilty friends to sign it so it can be a record of all the lovely quilters I know in this area.  Now to some layering up!

Your signature quilt looks great. I think you did the right thing making it square and framing it in red :o)

Love the granny squares...they look fantastic and the subtle blue border works perfectly.

Beautiful quilt. I love how improvisational it is, but still controlled.
