After surviving one of the rainiest and soggiest couple of weeks that I can recall in a long time, I had no choice but to stay in and work on quilt projects. Good thing too...I completed the African snowball quilt top. I opted to put on 2 borders with the outside border only on the sides. I really like that border fabric but I thought it would overwhelm the other fabrics if I were to put it on the sides and the top and bottom I have a backing picked out and hope to get this quilted over the next couple of weeks. I also completed 4 blocks for the Farmers' Wife sampler. I now have 10 completed and I only have 101 more to make. This is my side project and I am enjoying it. I am making the blocks with various shades of the Daiwabo taupes. I think fall is on the way and I am looking forward to it. Happy quilting. Sorry for the quality of the pics -- lighting was not the best.
