Design Wall Monday, Jan. 27, 2014

This isn't a design wall so much as a design balcony landing. There was no place else in the house big enough to hang this thing from. It is huge, and has one more set of borders to go on. It's just a 2 inch outside border, so that won't be too bad. I have some of the blues left, so I think much of that outer border will be various blues. That might help the blues that are in that wide inner border fit in a bit better.  This is my job for tonight, to get the last of the borders onto this beautiful monster of a quilt. This was my UFO assignment for January, so, unless something unexpected happens, I will be able to cross this one off the list. It will be somewhere around 100 inches square when finished, although that will shrink up a bit with quilting. Maybe, by the time this is done, the warmer weather will be here and I can get the next picture of this outside where there is much more room, and much better light.
I'm linking up to Judy's Design Wall Monday.
