I have reached the final border for this quilt. Nothing sewed yet...naturally ran out of the off white. Off to store today to get some more or something similiar. I like how this is turning out. I would never in a thousand years have guessed that my quilt path would lead to this. I think Kheli said it--comtemporary with a nod to tradition. This is where I am going. I love quilts and their history too much to give up on "traditional", but am moving to the 21st century.
