Flowers for Nana Girl update

A late night session resulted in both borders getting attached to my version of Flowers for Nana Girl, from Scrap Basket Sensations.  The instructions called for a mitered border but with this busy of a print I didn't think it warranted the extra time and fabric.


This quilt has a deadline of this weekend.  The pin basting will ensue tomorrow night and quilting and binding will be completed by Sunday night.  There!  I've said it and now just need to not make a liar out of myself.  In other updates, the Christmas tree is finally fully decorated, I ordered the photo prints for our Christmas cards, and one more gift has been purchased.  It's a good thing we had a family portrait taken at the wedding, since Erica is in Arizona at school and not available until late next week!  I missed my tree decorating buddy--she usually helps me every year with the lights at least. Tonight my mom and I are going to enjoy some holiday cheer at a local movie theater showing of "It's a Wonderful Life", one of our favorites.  Time to enjoy the season!

I'll be cheering you on Annie.

Sounds like you're all organised for Christmas and ready to have some fun. I just have to wrap presents and then I can enjoy the next week.

Oh my! You have a tight time frame for quilting and finishing the quilt. Lovely color choices. Very pretty. I agree re: a mitered border. Unless it's a stripe or print that really shows when the miters match, I seldom do it.

Sounds like you're pretty well set for the holiday.
