Bordering and moving on!

 I am looking at that closet with the quilt tops all hanging up in a neat row, and those quilts are reproachful and say to me..."Why cannot I,  at last, have my border?  Why can I not get quilted!!!??"  All right, all right, LOL!  Since the above quilt top is so, so busy, I just used a plain border...so I just need to cut threads and get it quilted.  This is made entirely of scraps...even the border was cut from two pillowcases that were given to me.
 Same with this quilt...a plain border.  Pretty bright, yes??
 Closer to getting done!!  I am so happy!!
It is fall time here, and the vines are failing, but the melon vine is still trying to reproduce.  Nature is amazing!!!

Hypothermia protocol.  This is the process of cooling the patient after a cardiac arrest, in order to help preserve brain function. We have recently had two of these patients, cooled to 90-92 degrees F, and both of them are doing much, much better!!!  Hurrah!!

Two beautiful scrappy quilts. They do need to be finished to shine! Glad you have added their borders.

I love the top quilt. I really like the flying geese sashing. Both quilts are lovely, but the top one is my favorite. Great job. Thanks for sharing.

LOVE both of these and I think you did an excellent selection on border fabrics. Of course, you ALWAYS arrange your fabrics so nicely!

These two quilts are way to gorgeous to stay hidden in a closet. So happy they are coming out. Perfect call on the borders for both. Enjoy! ;^)
