The quilt will be queen sized. The pattern (Natural Beauty from Winter 2010 Quilts and More mag) calls for a 3.5 inch border. I may make it a bit wider but haven't decided yet. See more Design Walls on Judy's Patchwork Times.
Both of our August birthday offspring (above) have now had their birthdays. Nick had his yesterday and was surprised by his girlfriend Alison with a skydiving adventure. We thought we had him going a little on a red herring story but he confessed afterwards that the skydiving trip was what he suspected the surprise would be all along. Happy 26th, son!
