Design Wall - Still Chilhowie!

Progress has been made and I am still holding out hope for a September finish on this scrappy quilt top. The light border sashing pieces are cut, but only the right has been sewn to the scrappy outside border. But I'm very happy with it now! You can see that my current design wall is only big enough for 2/3 of this quilt. The left border is resting on a roll of batting, waiting to be attached.

I am still fussing around with the corners and have tried various options for turning the corner. I think this one is my favourite for two of the corners, but when I look at the other two corners, I like it less. I'm still going with it though, because Chilhowie and I are coming to the end of the construction journey - estimated time of finish is September 30 at 11:59 pm! 

Deadlines are motivating!

Kathy, Chilhowie is turning out so pretty! I love the reds especially - they really catch the eye. Good luck figuring out the corners - fingers crossed for September 30th!

I love your ETA and deadline comment. Your Chilhowie is very pretty. Those scraps work very well together. Wishing you all the best in meeting the deadline!

I like the corner. I'm looking forward to seeing this completed (as you are).
