It has been over a month since I posted an update on the status of my kaleidoscope quilt. It is coming along in fits and starts, with steady quilting over several days followed by total neglect then back to steady progress again. I have to concede that it will not be finished by Christmas as I had hoped but at least I am making progress, despite my fitful efforts.
In between my quilting sessions I have been pondering what I will quilt in the black border space.
It would be a good place to highlight feathers, but I suspect the feathers would not quite suit my teenage son, whose quilt this will be. I think I have come up with something I like if I can figure out how to make the design turn the corners. As you can see from my progress chart, I have quite a bit of quilting I can do before I start on the borders, so I have lots of time to sort things out.
I’m going to go get the fruitcake out of the oven and settle in with some slow stitching. I hope to get a few more triangles colored in on my chart by the end of the evening.
