One Quilt Project Finished (Finally) and Another Ready to Start

I had a creative breakthrough the other day and was finally able to finish a small wall quilt I've been making for my sister.  The center has been finished for at least a year but I got stuck on what I wanted to do for a border.  I got an idea for the border the other day and was able to get it all finished in time to give it to my sister tonight when she was in town for her Gaelic lesson.  One project checked off the list.  :)


Now I can get started on making the quilt I promised Alex so he has at least one real blanket for his bed.  :)

Here's the design I came up with.  It's based loosely on a quilt I found on this site.

I really, really like the quilts she makes and she even uses the quilt as you go method that I've been dying to try so I think this is going to be quite a fun project!  So far I've dyed the batting black so it won't show when I quilt and I've washed half the fabric.  I have high hopes that I might get started on the first block this weekend!
