Last week I set a goal for myself (you can read more about it here). Well, I didn't reach my goal, but it's OK. Sometimes projects take on a life of their own (or everyday life just gets in the way, kiddos get sick, etc). After getting Adam's quilt top pieced together I couldn't stop thinking that it should be bigger and it just seemed too narrow once I trimmed off the edges of the zigzags (it's about 49"x 75" now).

I decided that it would be perfect for Adam's bed so I am now going to add 2 borders all around it. After auditioning several different fabrics I am going with an orange coordinate from the same Riley Blake All Star line and more of the blue circles (already used in the quilt). I'll keep you posted on how it turns out.
Happy friday everyone!
