|These are 4 1/2 inch squares. I made mine 5 1/2 inches.|
|Sample blocks - Quilt center is 9 x 9 squares.|
|I use one of Bonnie Hunter's tips to make half square triangles at the same time I made the block.|
I think I can work them into another border. I plan to finish the quilt with a wide border of this beautiful Paisley from Kaufman's La Scala 5. I just ordered it, so I won't know until it arrives if it will do the job. I think they is just enough purple in this fabric to set off the rest of the quilt.

I have 6 of the 9 rows for the center completed. I hope to have this ready for my long arm quilter before the end of October.
This weekend I also tied up a few lose ends. I finished binding the quilt my granddaughter made for her mom.

It's getting cooler here in Southwestern Ohio. It's getting dark earlier. All indicators that it's time to wrap up the garden and focus on quilting!. It's hard to believe in a few more week the fall show will be over. Thanks for checking in.
