I've finished quilting the baptist fans in the center of this orphan quilt! I haven't really touched it much since leaving Paris, but between the flight here to AZ, and the time I've had here to work on it in between other things..it's amazing how far you can get just a little bit at a time!
I'm now working on the borders. I don't know if you can see in the border pic that I am just echoing seam lines. Some of the strips get a line of quilting down the center, but if the strip is wide enough, it will get two lines. I'm just playing it by ear. The black inner border is going to get a simple zig zag.....
Yes, It's being quilted with red thread, and I love that you can see the little dots of colors here and there.
We've had a lovely time. Today the weather has been absolutely gorgeous. We even enjoyed a long walk in a nature area (sorry can't remember the name) and loved watching the ducks down by the pond and seeing the desert foliage, etc.
Dinner for my dad is tonight to celebrate his 70th. Tomorrow is the last day (sad) and I am headed home on Sunday!
