UFO of the month - 4B's

August's UFO is coming along nicely. I have now covered the 4 B's - border, backing, batting, and binding. I found a wonderful piece of paisley yardage in my stash that was perfect for the border and binding, and bought a pretty blue wide yardage for the backing.


The quilt is now pin basted and I have prepared my machine for quilting. 
I always change my needle and oil my sewing machine before I start machine quilting a new project. 
The plan is to quilt vertical scalloped lines with my free motion foot. 
Off we go....
