12-1/2" BOM

I'm on holidays for a couple of days and am hoping to make some progress on a couple of UFO's. I finished putting the borders on our on-line group's BOM earlier today. Pretty windy outside so this is the best photo I could get.

I really wanted to make the ribbon border and to make it fit I had to make the cream inner border 2" finished for the top and bottom and 1" finished for the sides. I'm hoping to use up the leftover fabrics for the backing but am pretty sure that when sewn together the backing won't be big enough. Something will turn up.

Finished Quilt Top
The girls chose great blocks and I'm thrilled to bits.

Back to the sewing room to start the next SBS block and choose a UFO.
