|A portrait of TC, using Papa's camera.|
This weekend was my catch-up weekend; I knew I wanted to make some progress on the various projects I've got going on, and I even managed to do that for most of them.
|The OBW quilt, all sewn together.|
As far as finishing the quilt, I'm thinking a thin, two inch finished width black border, followed by a scarlet red, then a black tone on tone wider fabric, with red for the binding. For the backing... Probably just a flat Kona cotton, most likely black. I'm not a huge fan of using patterned fabric for backings--I'd much rather see it on the front of a quilt!

|My first curved seam!|
|Less exciting than the other blocks I did today, but still pretty.|
I'll do a show off of the fabric I bought at Burkholder's this week, maybe Wednesday, but probably not until the usual time. I also have some good news--it looks like maybe, maybe I'll be getting enough of a return from the government to afford the nice camera I've been drooling over. We'll see! I also hope to have some really cool news soon, I'm just waiting for a few things to come together before I do anything.
