I guess I'd agree with Jennifer, you probably don't need the side border but I'm sure whatever you decide will be awesome. I really like those blues with it.

Aw, it's like that O. Henry story with Daleks, lol. Well, something like it, anyway. I hadn't seen one of those, glad you got it.

George Michael, now Carrie Fisher, and everyone else...seems like this has been a long, sad year.

But yes, we'll make 2017 better! :)

2016 has seen too many losses from my teens/young adulthood. I think that's what hits people so hard. It's part of our personal life story.

I don't think work is going to leave me any energy to even worry about his quilt until Thursday or Friday. We're closed Friday. Hopefully I'll make a decision by then.

The quilt is looking really good. I do like those blues! However you decide to finish that quilt, it will be great!!!

I read somewhere today that as we get older, deaths of loved ones, people we look up to and respect, and entertainment and other icons seem to occur with greater frequency since they too are aging. But it seems this year we lost too many way too young.

I haven't touched it all week, work has made me too tired, but I have a 4 day weekend starting tomorrow... so here's to finishing!

So...what did you do? Inquiring minds want to know!

Your very own Dalek. What everyone needs!

*sigh* Too much death. I feel like Ron in Half-Blood Prince constantly asking "anyone we know?"

I have done nothing. :( Too tired when I get home from work. I'm still covering for the other assistant while she's on vacation. I am sorely tempted to do the 2.5x 3.5 strips... I like the way they look. But I think I figured I'd need 82 total for both sides... :O I will decide tomorrow I think. I've gotta hit target for some toiletries and such. I plan to do that early and then come home and sew and do some laundry. Bonus day off!

Welp, I've missed the whole development of this new quilt, but it looks amazing! Love the blues in the border, they really pop. I hope you get some more done on it before you have to head back to work.


A talking plushie Dalek. What are coworkers for?!?!? Fabulous gift. :)

I was at work Tues-Thurs of this week, and too exhausted when I came home to work on it. But I pieced the blue side borders last night, so I'll get those on the sides today and get the back pieced. Then I've got to drag it to my office to baste. There's no where with enough empty space in my house to baste it.

Sounds like you've made a decision about the borders, so I won't weigh in there.. but it's looking really good!

EXTERMINATE! Love the Dalek :D

I did. Eventually, lol. It went faster than piecing the top and bottom because I already had strips cut from that.
