Quilting Again

The corners are appliqued with butterflies

And one side border  is mostly quilted

Happy Sunday!

Border Progress

Someone asked me last night if I'd been sick since I hadn't been posting regularly.  Nope..not sick..just haven't had anything new to post. I've been working on the appliqued borders for Dutch Treat #3 and last night I finished the 4th side.  Just have to decide what I'm going to do in the corners and then it will be time to start quilting the borders. 

Took some time out this afternoon to start working on a memorial T-shirt quilt for one of the daughter-in-laws who lost her brother earlier this year.  And in the middle of doing that we had a surprise visit from Great-grand#5 (aka Aly). 

Much more fun than quilting!

Center Finished

Last night I finished the quilting on the 196 center 4" blocks. 

Close up of one section. Wish the quilting showed

Now "all" that is left is to add the four outer borders, design the applique for them, do the applique, quilt them and lastly bind the quilt.  It will be another scalloped edge like the first two.

Not sure why the quilting is taking longer this time, but I've spent a little more than 3 months on just this part of it.  I started the quilt in April. Still hope to have it done by the end of the year.
