I only work on this project when we are away from home, so I'm not sure when it will get finished. At any rate it's nice to have something to stitch on in the evenings while we are winding down from vacation activities like 5 mile hikes.
I did spend some time on my OMG for July. The July UFO is my Scrappy Coffee Cups blocks made as part of the 2012 Rainbow Scrap Challenge. These blocks haven't been made into a quilt because I was out of the white background fabric and couldn't figure out how to set them without additional fabric. I did a bit of playing in EQ over the last few days. I tried a scrappy border and just didn't like it. After playing around with borders and such, here's the most likely possibility.

It's not that different then what I started with, but the sashing is narrower. Plus I've added two borders of white tone on tone. Hopefully there is another white tone on tone in the stash that reads the same as the background fabric for the blocks. Since it won't be right up against the blocks, it shouldn't be as noticeable that it's not the exact same fabric. The actual color of the sashing and borders will be determined by what is in the stash. I really like the blue borders, but My Guy likes green. This is going to be his recliner cuddle quilt. I'm going to stick with tone on tone fabrics for the borders no matter what color they end up being.
On a completely unrelated note. Twenty five years ago on July 11th, we said our I do's. Happy anniversary My Guy!
Looking forward to the next 25!
