Quilting Update

I'm still plugging away on Grandpa's quilt. If all goes well, I'm hoping to have it complete by Thanksgiving. It will be a stretch to finish that quickly, but I need to get it done!

Here is a picture of today's progress. I completed all the blocks and laid out my final design. Yes, I am missing one block of the red fabric on the bottom. Hubby and I are going to Joann's tomorrow to buy another quarter yard of it. I hope they have some in stock or I will be redoing my design!

Once I pick up the last bit of fabric, I can sew the entire top together. Then I have to figure out how to sew on the border! I bought a really nice chocolate brown colored fabric for the border.

Bruno loves it when I spread fabric on the floor. He always tries to find a way to lay on it. Good thing my grandparents are not allergic to cats!

So wonderful! Your grandpa is really going to enjoy that! Seeing it laid out is making me want to get mine out and get back to work! Soon, very soon!

Keep it up! It is looking very lovely!
