It was a nice weekend. A bit of housework got done and the towers of laundry were reduced to small lumps. Even with all that there was still some time to spend in the sewing room. Though it wasn't all stitching. A bit of straightening up was needed, plus a bit of rearranging to do a better job of organizing my scraps.
Drama Teen and I played around with border options for the Jigsaw quilt. Our original plan to have a 1" lime green border before adding the dark blue border just didn't work. We tried a few other bright colors and realized that what was needed was to put the dark blue first, then add a narrow bright border before adding a final border of more dark blue. The first 4 border strips are cut, sewn and trimmed to size, only the 2 vertical borders managed to get sewn on.

Drama Teen is thrilled with it thus far and is ready to have it on her bed. Hopefully I can get the borders on and a back made before the end of July so it can go off for quilting.
That's it for my design wall this week. You can see more eye candy over at Judy's Patchwork Times.
