Last night I was able to finish the I Spy a Crumb Patch quilt top. I am really happy with it and know exactly what fabric to purchase for the border (a bright but deep colored blue). A while back I saved a link in my RSS feed for prairie points and I think that would totally look cool in this scrappy quilt. Pieces of Rana's Life is a great blog and this tutorial makes it look easy! I was going to put on a 1" finished border in blue, then the prairie points (scrappy of course), then a 3" finished border using the same blue.
Here is the quilt top
In other news, I was going to start the Tree of Life quilting, only to realize I skipped an important step: I forgot to purchase coordinating thread! I am going to take care of that today or tomorrow. Gold for most of the body and brown for the tree.
