Holiday Pines ... Continued

I have now added a gray border to "Holiday Pines," bringing elements from the center of the quilt out into the border. You can see where I started this quilt HERE.

My goal for this quilt is to merge or integrate fiber art with traditional utility type quilts. It measures around 60"X60" and is big enough for a throw for the back of a couch or small enough for a wall in your mountain cabin.

Now, my question is how should I quilt it? Is it complete with the gray borders? With what color should it be bound?

Life and Sailboat IV

Life ...
Paul and Scott work on Scott's drone.

Scott handles the controls.

Gabriel is mixing paint for ...

... his Legal Eagle wings.

Quinten thought it was a privilege for me to help move equipment. He said that I GET to, not have to, pull the combine header. My jaw was tight and I was tense for the whole 8 miles.

Holiday Pines Quilt

... as a Quilter
It's tempting to just slap a gray border on this improvisational quilt and call it ready to quilt.  But wait ... I think it's better to take elements from the center of the quilt and place them in the borders. So, it will take a little more time now to complete.

I started out by making pine tree blocks ...

... in holiday colors. 

Then I laid the blocks out in a pleasing arrangement and added sashing with smaller pine trees inserted randomly.

I trimmed here and there as I went so I could sew a straight line.

Life ...
Boys will be boys.
