Another border




I finished the next to last border on the Blogger's BOM. I quilted a scroll which is relatively easy. The hardest part is making sure the direction of the curl alternates properly.  I seem to want to sew the scrolls in the same direction.  I've had problems in the past keeping the size of each scroll consistent.  This one was easy.  I used the width of the piano keys as a guide. It really worked out well.

I thought I would have more quilting done by now but the holiday as well as my work schedule seemed to throw me off.  I've started stitching in the ditch in the piano key border.  It seems a bit time consuming but I'll be happy when it's done!

 
As you can see, Lily likes the quilt so far! She thinks it's a great spot to lay down for a rest!

As usual, I will be linking up at Leah Day's Free Motion Friday page which you can see here.

Hope you're having a wonderful holiday weekend!
